Mouth of the Tyne Aquathlon

Set in the shadow of the historic Tynemouth Priory the Mouth of the Tyne Aquathlon made its debut on the local multi-sport scene in August 2019. Such was the success of the event for both participants and spectators that it won Triathlon England North East Region’s Event of the Year and we are back for 2022.

Participants will start on the beach at Tynemouth Haven and complete two 375m laps in the mouth of the Tyne. At the end of lap one participants will leave the water in an Australian style exit, run a short way along the beach and then re-enter the water to complete their second lap. After finishing the swim the participants will transition and start their 5k run by heading past the Collingwood Monument towards the River Tyne and along towards the redevelopments of North Shields Fish Quay. They will then return back along the riverside promenade, past the race start, and then run along the North Pier with the North Sea to either side. At the end of the pier participants will turn around and head towards the finish line with the magnificent Tynemouth Priory staring down at them.

This event is as picturesque as it is challenging.
