Organiser's Description

Welcome to the events page for the Borders and Bridges Sprint Triathlon, 2019


Location: Berwick-upon-Tweed

Date: 1st September 2019

Event: Sprint Triathlon

Swim: 500m pool based

Bike: 21.6k

Run: 5.7k



Tweed Triathlon Club, based in Berwick-upon-Tweed,  representing triathlon and fitness enthusiasts across North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, are hosting their 5th triathlon event after the success of the first 4 years.


The Pool swim will be based in the Swan Centre swimming pool, Berwick-upon-tweed. The swim order will be dictated in waves based on submitted ‘estimated swim times'.

Transition will be sited in the car park adjacent to the pool.

The Bike route is a 21.6k loop taking in 3 bridges and 2 border crossings, before heading back to the Swan Centre for transition.

The Run is 5.7k, taking in two more bridge crossings and the magnificent Elizabethan Ramparts and famous Berwick Walls before again returning to the Swan Centre to cross the finish line next to the transition area.


The lower reaches of the Tweed provide an impressive back drop for this event.  Berwick’s unique and historic environment, spanning both sides of the border, is a great place to explore by bike and the nature of the border crossings along the bike route creates a special platform for the event.

Once in transition, the run takes you along to the ‘New Bridge’ yielding great views of the iconic Royal Border Bridge and the famous River Tweed below.  From here, the run takes you on to the medieval ramparts for a circuit around the Berwick Walls, until the next bridge crossing - Berwick Old bridge. From here runners will return to the Swan Centre and the finish line.

The Fee of £40 (includes day licence from BTF) or £35 (if a BTF member) represents great value in what we hope will become a regular fixture in the triathlon calendar.

Borders and Bridges Trophy

Uniquely there will be a team trophy. The first 3 finishers from any team (cumulative postions) will be presented with the Borders and Bridges Trophy which they will hold for a year in recognition of them being the fastest club over the Borders and Bridges course throughout the region.
