**Note - The event is now a Duathlon**Horwich Triathlon is known as 'The Race To The Pike'. It's one of the oldest triathlon events in the North West, dating back over 25 years.
It starts with a 500m pool swim and then a 40km undulating cycle ride, but we save the best bit until the end. The 8.6km run climbs all the way to the summit of Rivington Pike, before descending back to the finish at Horwich Leisure Centre. We have all ability levels taking part, but it's not for the faint hearted. It's a tough challenge, but that's what makes the event so popular and whilst the run is brutal, it's what makes it iconic.
This event is also the EPIC Club Championships, your club can score points by having more competitors in the event and finishing higher up the ranks. The club with the most points wins £1000 to donate to a charity of their choice.
