beginners over three separate races.

for first, £300 for second and £200 for third overall man
We are pleased to announce that local firm Visualsoft along with Stockton
Riverside college are sponsoring the main prizes for the Standard Race
The course is yet to be finalised but
will be very similar to that used for the Stockton Triathlon. The transition
area and event base will on Stockton's Riverside right in the heart
of the town. The bike course will be on an exciting fast and flat fully
closed road circuit around the Riverside and University
area with plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes.
The run will be over a 5k circuit based
on the New Infinity Bridge and slightly older Millennium Bridge taking
in the riverside walkways on the university side of the river.
The Novice Race is particularly aimed
at first timers or anyone that would like to try their hand at duathlon.
It's an opportunity to become actively involved in what should be a
great days' sport.
More Details to follow shortly.
