Event organiser One Step Beyond has confirmed it will be staging the annual Emergency Services Triathlon Championships and has opened up entry.
The competition that sees fire, ambulance and police etc duke it out over a triathlon course is again being held at the National Water Sports Centre, Nottingham.
Triathletes will be racing to help their service become the overall winner as well as fighting for individual age group prizes.
The course will be a 750m open water swim, followed by a traffic-free 20km cycle ride around the lake and a 5km run to finish.
Organisers have promised a flat course, but some keen headwinds and tight corners can make the bike course more challenging than it looks. It’s also a tactical race where you can see your opponents at all times.
The event is open to everyone associated with the emergency services and the event is suitable for all, from seasoned triathletes to novices and first time entrants. It is open to all Emergency Service personnel of all abilities including Police, Fire, Ambulance, Mountain Rescue, Coastguard / Lifeboat Services, Army, RAF, Navy, Air Ambulance, etc. whether you work on the front line, offices, workshops or retired.
