The Channel Tri
Set the date for 16th September when a new triathlon event comes to Folkestone.
Located at the Folkestone Harbour, the Channel Tri will start on Sunny sands beach, before competitors then head out of the water and run to The Harbour.
The bike section takes you on a cycle through country lanes onto quiet, scenic country roads through Hawkinge and the Alkham Valley, before returning to transition at harbour side. Finally, the run section is an out and back route along the coast towards Sandgate and return via the Leas Country park, before returning to the boardwalk at Folkestone harbour and crossing the finish line.
This is a charity event, organised by Tri Spirit Events on behalf of the Rotary Club. The main charities will be the Celia Blakey Centre for care of people being treated for cancer and the Shepway Sports Trust. Many other local charities will also benefit.
Registration takes place on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th September.
