The Horwich triathlon is back for 2012, taking place on Sunday May 6th. This event is a great opener for the year and the perfect event to test your endurance. Last year the event attracted 300 competitors from all over the UK, it is one of the oldest triathlons in the North West.

The 500m pool swim takes place in Horwich Leisure Centre, the first waves start at 7:30am and the final wave closer to 12 noon. The challenging 40k cycle route crosses the Lancashire Moors, taking in part of the IMUK triathlon route. The final 9k run follows roads and trails, climbing to the high point of Rivington Pike, before a rapid descent brings you all the way back to the finish line.
