The swim will be in the warm shallow freshwater QE2 lake set within the park grounds. The bike route will take you out of the Museum grounds along to the coastal route through Widdrington Village, before sweeping onto the coast and along to the beautiful Cresswell village with some breath-taking views along the coastline.

The run will be on the footpath that winds its way through the woodland and open grasslands that surround the lake. The run passes by the finish line within the Museum at the end of each lap making this ideal for spectators to cheer everyone on to a great finish with a big smile. The Woodhorn Museum triathlon is an ideal event for individuals and relay teams of all abilities, and you should be guaranteed a great event.

We are expecting a ‘sell out’ event attracting a top-quality field and a wide range of abilities. It will be fabulous again. If you are a first timer or new to the sport, there’s no need to be concerned about entering. We look after everyone regardless and will be with you all the way around the course. It’s fun and accessible for all ages and abilities to take part in, and you can be assured that there will be plenty of other triathletes of a similar ability to you taking part.
