I’m reading about a new event organised by VO2max. Described as ‘an exciting new event in historic market town, Sprint and Standard events in a beautiful region. The run route takes in the River Wansbeck and gorgeous Castle Gardens and past the iconic Clock Tower. The bike routes are fantastic, taking in the lovely little Northumbrian villages of Mitford, Meldon and Walton provide a challenging and varied bike leg which will be an instant success’.
Choose from either 3kmrun;25kmride,3kmrun or the longer 5:34:5. Its on April 9th. Costs £25 for BTF members, £30 for others. Age limit and conditions apply.
Later events by VO2 in the area are the Newbiggin Triathlon in May and the QE2 Woodhorn Tri in June. Information on www.vo2maxracingevents.co.uk/Events
