Ashbourne Triathlon – Postponed
Based at Ashbourne Leisure Centre this is an incredibly scenic Triathlon taking place in the beauty of the Peak District for the cycle leg and the picturesque Tissington trail for the run making the event extremely spectator friendly.
Unfortunately British Triathlon are not sanctioning pool based Triathlons until May 21st and as a result we have no other option tom postpone the event. Once the Leisure centre is open our priority is to find a suitable alternative date.
