The Clitheroe Triathlon is a challenging course set in the Ribble Valley. It starts with a 400m pool swim, but the real fun starts on the bike as the 30k ride is ‘lumpy’ and includes the climb up Birdy Brow, onto Longridge Fell. The run is relatively flat compared the the bike ride, it’s 8k out and back on road and should be enough to make you feel happy about reaching the finish line. We get a lot of novices taking part in this event, but it is more challenging than some of our other sprint triathlon events. Don’t let that put you off, it’s an EPIC day out!
