Sunday 4th June - Allerthorpe Sprint Triathlon.
Just a reminder about the event this Sunday. The route goes through the village so you may encounter competitors if you are out and about. Here is some information from the organiser.
This event is a short distance triathlon ideally suited to novice triathletes or those who prefer a shorter race. It has a 750m swim a 20km cycle ride and a 5km run.
Following the swim in the lake at Allerthorpe Lakeland Park, competitors will complete the 20km cycle route, which heads out from the Park towards Melbourne, turning left at Campy Lane. The route then progresses to Bielby via Mill Lane, then via Crudhall Lane and Carr Lane to Join the A1079 (West bound). Following a left turn at the roundabout the riders head back through Allerthorpe to return to Allerthorpe Lakeland Park.
After a quick change, competitors then complete the 5km out and back run which takes them left from the Park towards Melbourne and then 1st left at Marketbridge Lane. They turn around near Oakbridge Farm and return along the same route to finish back at the Park.
The first swimmers will start at 9:00am and we would expect everyone to be finished by around 11:00am.
