Brightonians! There’s a big new triathlon coming to your neck of the woods next year. The first Brighton and Hove Triathlon will be held in September 2016 with up to 3,000 participants expected.


There’ll be a range of distances and events on offer, including sprint and Olympic distance triathlons, plus a scootathlon for youngsters aged 4-8 to be held the day before.

Transition will be on Hove Lawns just behind the seafront, giving a wide and safe transition zone. There will also be a Sport and Fitness Show held over the same weekend on Hove Lawns, aimed at sport-loving families and fitness enthusiasts.
