The 6.3km run then goes out from the leisure centre along mainly quiet, leafy roads around east Wilmslow. This is a mainly flat route with some inclines near the River Bollin.
After the event there will be a prize giving, celebrating all those making great achievements in this race! The event will benefit from numbered racking, electronic chip timing and a medal. This is the biggest and best sprint triathlon in Greater Manchester. All finishers receive a fantastic medal and free event photos available for downloading and printing up to A4 size.
