The University of Nottingham is to host its first ever sprint triathlon this coming weekend, organised by students to raise money for dementia research project Life Cycle 5.


The Varsity Triathlon will be held on the University Park Campus on Sunday 22 March and will be open to students, staff and the general public, involving a 400m indoor swim, 15km cycle and 5km run.

“The Triathlon Club is thrilled that our dream of hosting our very own triathlon is coming to fruition this March,” said Ben Beranek, president of the University’s triathlon club and co-director of the Varsity Triathlon.
