Olympic hero Alistair Brownlee said:

“It’s about doing everything we can to encourage as many people as possible to travel here to experience the magnificent countryside and also to help triathlon maintain a really strong presence in the north of England.”
Competitors can do the triathlons solo or join with two friends to compete as a team. Ripon Triathlon Festival will aim to have a “festival atmosphere” with a weekend of events for everyone alongside music and talks. Read more local stories from Your Harrogate here.
