The second event of the Udo’s Choice Triathlon Race Series is another pool based triathlon taking place at the Driffield Sports Centre on 20th May. Following on from the success of the Skipton Triathlon last month, this race is expected to attract over 200 competitors who will race a 400m swim in the sports centres six lane pool. Having completed the swim, competitors embark on a scenic 1 lap (18km) bike course, taking in some very scenic views along the way. After returning from the bike course the 5km run utilises the roads, paths and grassed areas around the sports centre. This multi lap run ensures that spectators enjoy watching the competitors complete the final discipline of the event.
This race proves very popular amongst novice or new triathletes and is also ideally suited to the experienced athlete; this race has seen some remarkable performances over the events three year history.
