Entires have opened for the 2014 Borders Triathlon series, which begins in Galashiels in April and ends in Eyemouth in September.

The Borders Sport and Leisure Trust series, one of the biggest of its type in Scotland, also includes events Selkirk, Peebles, Hawick and Kelso and Eyemouth

Ewan Jackson, chief executive of Borders Sport and Leisure Trust, said: “We are looking forward to an action packed series. Last year’s events attracted virtually capacity attendances so we are keen to encourage athletes to register for this year’s series as son as they can to be sure not to miss out on a place.”
