Ludlow Sprint Triathlon

THE ORGANISERS OF THIS EVENT HAVE ALSO TAKEN THE DECISION TO CANCEL IT FOR THIS YEAR

 

A partnership between local volunteer groups, Ludlow Runners, Ludlow Cycling Club and Teme Leisure, the Ludlow Sprint Triathlon has been going since 1996.  It is held at Ludlow Leisure Centre, situated at the northern edge of town,  just off the A49 and along side Ludlow Secondary School.  The swim takes place in the 25-metre pool in the Leisure Centre, with Transition situated to the rear of the building. The cycle goes through part of the town, out onto country roads before returning to the centre on the A49. The run is an out and back course on the footpath alongside the A49 to the north of Ludlow.
