Borders and Bridges Sprint
2 September 2018
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'.
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.
