Sign up for Skipton Triathlon 2019 - entries now open

Three generations running Skipton triathlon 2019

Published by Lizzy McEllan at 2:27pm 5th November 2018.

Entries for Skipton Triathlon 2019 have now officially opened, with early bird prices available for a limited time only.

The race will be held on Sunday 14 April 2019, and prices remain the same as this year. It's the biggest pool-based triathlon in the country and is popular with both first-timers and elite athletes.

Craven District Council organised the event for the first time in April 2017 and repeated its success earlier this year, with more than 800 people completing the race in Aireville Park.

The event involves a 400m swim in the Craven Leisure pool, followed by a 22km bike ride out through East and West Marton and Thornton-in-Craven, and then a 5km run around Aireville Park.

Councillor Linda Brockbank, Craven District Council’s lead member for Resilient Communities, said:

“This is a fantastic event and each year we get amazing feedback from people who have taken part.

“From complete beginners to talented elite athletes, this race attracts a huge range of competitors. This year we even had three generations of the same family taking part in the relay event!

“We’ve been very lucky to have some great sponsors, supporters and volunteers, who help us stage this event and make it such a memorable experience.”

For more information about Skipton Triathlon, or to register an interest in taking part, please go to the race website.

From November 1, you can sign up for the triathlon at the British Triathlon website.

An ‘early bird’ offer is in place from 1 November, with prices at £38 for British Triathlon Federation (BTF) members, £41 for non-BTF members, and team entries at £63 (BTF) and £73 (non-BTF). After the early bird offer ends, the standard prices will be £43 (BTF) £46 (non-BTF) and team entries £73 (BTF) £83 (non BTF).
