The Newcastle Triathlon 2014

Newcastle-Triathlon-2014

VO2 Max Racing Events, supported by Triathlon England and Newcastle City Council, are delighted to announce a spectacular new event.

The atmosphere will be awesome for everyone there; participants and spectators alike will take home a fantastic experience.

Thousands from all over the UK and further afield will descend on the fabulous quayside for the first edition of the event on 19th July 2014, where athletes of all abilities will be cheered on to a grand finish and well-deserved medal by the gathered crowds.

A Saturday schedule enables everyone to enjoy an exciting day of sport then keep the party going into the small hours by enjoying the city’s vibrant night-life.

Whether you’re a beginner, a seasoned triathlete or even a single-sport enthusiast, The Newcastle Triathlon has something to offer! We have a Beginner’s Triathlon, perfect for first-timers and those graduating from pool triathlons to the open water.

More seasoned athletes will tackle the Sprint Triathlon, led off by an application-only Elite wave; and plans are underway to add a Standard-distance event with a truly amazing run route, subject to securing the necessary agreements and road closures. Add in relays, team events and a Corporate Challenge and we’re set for a great day of racing!
