Wirral Triathlon: 25th August 2019
Come and join us for the Wirral Triathlon, held each year in September at the marine lake. The swim is in the marine lake - a safe open water venue, its a two-lap bike course followed by a run twice around the lake. It’s a great event to round off the season, but be sure to book your place as it often sells out! Mersey Tri organise it with Epic Events - find out more and book through their website:
In September we host a club aquathlon on Ainsdale beach where Mersey Tri members compete against the local RNLI lifeguards. It’s a sea swim followed by a beach run, and there’s a trophy up for grabs for both the first Mersey Tri male and female.
