The usual Borders and Bridges Trophy will be awarded to the fastest club over the Borders and Bridges course, based on the cumulative time of the first 3 individual finishers from that club. The lower reaches of the Tweed provide an impressive back drop for this new event. Berwick’s unique and historic environment, spanning both sides of the border, is a great place to explore by bike and the nature of the border crossings along the bike and run routes create a memorable platform for the event.

Borders and Bridges Sprint route

The Swan Leisure Centre swimming pool, Berwick-upon-Tweed, is the venue for the swim. Starting order will be dictated in waves based on submitted ‘estimated swim times’ for that distance.

The bike route is a single loop, taking in 3 bridges and 2 border crossings before heading back to the Swan Centre for T2.

The single loop run takes you through Tweedmouth and along to the docks, crossing the Tweed at the Old Bridge, yielding great views of the iconic Royal Border Bridge and the famous River Tweed below. From here the run takes you on to the medieval ramparts for a circuit around the Berwick Walls then, once again crossing Berwick Old Bridge. After returning over the Old Bridge runners will then head back to the Swan Centre and the finish line. Note that the last 1km follows a different route to that used on the first 1km. Transition is sited in the car park adjacent to the pool.
