Paul Mathieson of Freebird Events  told us they were "..delighted with the massive amount of positive feedback received  following this early season event. The Skipton Triathlon, believed to be the  largest pool based  triathlon in the North of the country certainly captured people’s  imagination. Competitors of all abilities took part in the sprint event and  experienced a fantastic atmosphere. “It was great to see so many people  enjoying  themselves”.

The Udo's Choice Triathlon Race Series moves on to  Driffield for the second Sprint event on 16 May.  We will be there and will report back on what should be another great event for all levels of triathletes.
