Brownlee brothers to host triathlon event

Now triathlon is reckoned to be the fastest growing sport in Britain, and Yorkshire's own Olympic heroes - Gold medallist Alistair and Bronze medallist Jonny - are giving even more people the chance to join in.

They're organising a brand new event - the Brownlee Super Sprint Triathlon - which will be held in the stunning surroundings of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Park in North Yorkshire on September 21. 700 have already entered - including the lads themselves - and there are still 300 places left.
