Round 3 of the Epic North West Triathlon Series for 2018 is the infamous Horwich Triathlon. Horwich Triathlon is one of the North West’s longest established races in the triathlon calendar and its tough course will put even the best to the test. Horwich Triathlon will consist of a 500m pool swim, a 40k road cycle and an 8.6k off road run.The Swim:The swim will take place in Horwich Leisure Centre’s pool. Swimmers will start from 7am through to 2pm, based upon ability level. You will complete 20 lengths of a 25m There will be 3 people in each lane at any given When you enter, your estimated swim time will be used to calculate your swim start.The Bike:The bike route is a tough 40k cycle ride and is made up of only 1 loop.The event is non-drafting (you cannot ride directly behind another competitor to shelter from the wind) and you must not ride 2 abreast on the road. The road is not closed to traffic and so you must follow the Highway Code at all times, riding responsibly.The route is adequately signed throughout to guide you and there will be marshals at critical locations. The marshals cannot stop traffic and will not say if it is ‘clear to go’ so you must be responsible for your own safety and check for traffic.The Run:The iconic 8.6k run is roughly an ‘out and back’ that reaches the summit of Rivington Pike. As Rivington Pike is very exposed to the weather, you may need a windproof/waterproof jacket if the forecast is poor!
