North Norfolk Triathlon – 20th September 2015 – based in Wells-next-the-Sea

The North Norfolk Triathlon is to take place on Sunday 20th September. This is an annual event much enjoyed by the competitors and spectators alike. Approximately 300 athletes enter this event which is based in Wells-next-the-Sea, but also showcases the beautiful North Norfolk countryside and picturesque villages including Walsingham along the 25 mile cycle route.

The event starts at approximately 11:00am on Sunday 20th September. More information, online registration and the swim, cycle and run routes can be found here www.wellsharbour.co.uk/northnorfolktriathlon.htm. The event is expected to finish around 15:00. Route signs will be erected on the Saturday evening and will be dismantled on Sunday afternoon.

Although this year will be the 8th year the event has been run, it will be the first time it has been organised by the Wells Harbour Maritime Trust, a registered charity that provides funding for local young people in seamanship, sail training and maritime educational courses to help with their social development and career choices. The Trust also works with schools in the area giving “Fun on the Water” days where primary school age children can come along and learn kayaking skills and visit the beach for a nature trail. All surpluses from the running of the triathlon will provide funds to continue with these aims.
