Fancy a Challenge? Join us on Sunday 25th August for the Shoreline Festival Sprint Triathlon!

The annual Triathlon organised by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council in conjunction with Triathlon Ireland returns on Sunday 25 August 2019 at 8am. For the first time the venue has been changed from Valley Leisure Centre to Hazelbank Park to form part of the Council’s popular Shoreline Festival, and allow for an open water swim in Belfast Lough. 

The Shoreline Festival Sprint Triathlon provides a challenge for all levels of fitness. Whether you are new to triathlon or an experienced triathlete, the flat, fast course is suitable for all. To mark the official launch of the triathlon by the Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey we are providing 100 places at an amazing half price of €25.
