How do I enter?
Click here to enter the Wensleydale Triathlon - NOT YET AVAILABLE

 

The original Yorkshire Dales Triathlon is one of the oldest events in the UK. Now renamed as the Wensleydale Triathlon, this event is more of a day out than it is a race! The 2000m swim in Semer Water is stunning and usually a bit chilly. The 40 miles bike route is perhaps the most challenging in the UK with several major Yorkshire climbs. Once that's over, there's only the task of running to the summit of Shunner Fell, before descending back to the finish in the market town of Hawes. This is a 'bucket list' event for those who are looking for a real challenge, stunning scenery and an EPIC day out!
