The Teesdale Triathlon is one of the most popular events on the North-East calendar. It consists of a 400m (16 lengths) pool swim, followed by an 18-mile cycle route through scenic Teesdale. The event concludes with a three-mile, off-road run. The race is ideal for beginners and experienced triathletes alike. Those new to triathlon will be able to take advantage of several free Go Tri events in the build-up to this year's race. These will contain some mini race tasters, plus advice on transitions etc.

Teesdale Triathlon route

Following a swim of 400m at the Leisure Centre indoor pool, competitors will tackle the 18-mile cycle route. This proceeds to Staindrop along the A688 and continues in an anti-clockwise direction over the testing and scenic moorland route over the B6279 to Folly Top. Then follows a long and fast descent along the B6278 back to the Leisure Centre.

The run route starts at the back of the Leisure Centre and follows public footpaths, crossing the trackbed of the former Darlington-Barnard Castle railway and heading north to Stainton. The return route takes in the footpath alongside the A688 towards the finish at the side of the Leisure Centre.
