CLITHEROE will be hosting a triathlon from Ribblesdale Swimming Pool on Sunday, August 19th, and the organisers are appealing for competitors.

The triathlon includes a 400m pool swim, an 18-mile road cycle and a four-mile trail/road run.

With a scenic and challenging route, it is the perfect activity for those looking for a testing competition.

Competitors can sign up as solo entrants or as a relay team of three.

Entrants must be 16 years or older and in good health.

If in a relay team, your swimmer can be under 16.

The 400m swim will take place at Ribblesdale Swimming Pool between 8 a.m. and noon, which will be followed by the 18-mile bike ride through Bashall Eaves and up Jeffery Hill before the final out and back route of the four-mile run through the Ribble Valley Way.

An event momento will be rewarded at the end to those who finish.
