Set in the shadow of Tynemouth Priory, the Mouth of the Tyne Aquathlon is a new event in the North East Multi-Sport calendar but one which will surely take it's place on many people's to do list due to its iconic setting.
Participants will start on the beach at Tynemouth Haven and do two laps of a swim course in the mouth of the Tyne, which will include an Australian style exit and re-entry after the first lap. From there they will run past Collingwood Monument towards the redevelopments of North Shields Fish Quay. They will then return along the riverside promenade, past the start, and run along the north pier with the North Sea at their sides. On completing their run to and from the pier all participants will finish once again with the Priory looking down on them
An ideal first open water event whilst still maintaining enough of a challenge to attract seasoned multi-eventers the Mouth of the Tyne Aquathlon is sure to attract participants from near and far.
