The Brownlee Tri will be returning to Harewood House in Leeds for its third consecutive year on Saturday 24th September 2016. Alistair and Jonny Brownlee’s triathlon will once again offer Sprint and Super-Sprint distances for individuals and a Sprint relay for teams around the spectacular Harewood course.
The 2016 Brownlee Tri will build on the success of the 2015 event, when over 6,000 people descended on the beautiful Harewood estate. With over 1600 registered participants, the event was a huge success bringing together triathletes of all ages and abilities to experience the course.
Details of a new Triathlon event - organised by Yorkshire's Olympic heroes, gold medallist Alistair and bronze medallist Jonny - have been confirmed.
The Brownlee Super Sprint Triathlon will be held in the stunning surroundings of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Park in North Yorkshire on September the 21st.
It'll involve a 400m open water swim in the Studley Lake, before 2 laps of the cycle route covering 10km, and a final 2.5km run to a spectacular finish in front of the Abbey ruins. 700 have already entered - including the Brownlee brothers themselves - and there are still 300 places left.
Jonny Brownlee from Leeds has won his second successive World Triathlon Series event in Madrid. The 23-year-old defending world champion finished in one hour, 50 minutes and 42 seconds. He is now is in sixth place in the series with four events to go, including the London grand final.
His older brother Alistair was forced to miss the competition due to an ankle injury.
Olympic bronze medallist Jonny Brownlee has claimed his third World Triathlon Series win of the season to put himself in pole position to succeed older brother Alistair as world champion.
Twenty two year Jonny is now top of the rankings after his victory in Stockholm. The title is decided over a series of races with the Grand Final being held in Auckland in October.
