This year’s Borders Sport and Leisure Triathlon series will take place at six locations across the Borders, with sprint events at Eyemouth, Galashiels, Hawick, Kelso and Peebles; a standard event at Selkirk and Come & Tri events (shortened courses perfect for novice competitors) at Eyemouth, Galashiels, Hawick, Kelso and Peebles. There will also be two duathlon events in Peebles and Tweedbank.

The series has become one of the most popular in Scotland, attracting hundreds of competitors from across the Borders, Lothians and further afield.

Ewan Jackson, chief executive of Borders Sport and Leisure said: “Our triathlon series continues to grow in both stature and popularity. The events are renowned for being both friendly and well organised and are open both to regular competitors and those who may be taking part in a triathlon for the first time.

“Bookings for this year are already flooding in so I’d like to encourage anyone considering taking part to reserve their spot as soon as possible to ensure they don’t miss out on what I am confident will be a highlight in the 2015 Borders sporting calendar.”
