Last week Brighton and Hove City Council gave their seal of approval for the second Brighton and Hove Triathlon, to take place on Sunday 17th September 2017.
2016’s closed road Brighton and Hove Triathlon was a great success with over 1,000 entrants and saw spectators in their thousands show their support along Brighton seafront for the first time event. The event saw many athletes gain personal best’s on the fast and flat traffic free course, raising over £30,000 for charity in the process. The triathlon received a multitude of positive feedback from competitors; “British triathlon back where it belongs, in the hands of a John Lunt posse”.
Next year’s race is opened up to 2,000 competitors and offers Olympic, Sprint (incl. Draft legal), and Super Sprint distances. Organisers have also opened entries to youth and junior racing. The free Sport and Fitness Show running alongside the race hosted 70 exhibitors and will also return for 2017 with more interactive sport activities for all the family.
