Excellent conditions and a record number of athletes ensured a great day of triathlon on Saturday for the annual Brownlee Tri at Harewood House in Leeds. The day saw athletes from complete novices through to experienced Elites, racing over the Sprint and Super-Sprint formats, with the course based within the grounds of stunning Harewood Estate.

There was close racing at the front of the Men's Sprint distance where Racetime Events athlete James Teagle took his second Brownlee Tri victory, having won the inaugural edition at Fountains Abbey two years ago. He finished clear of team mate Carl Shaw in second after the pair were very evenly matched through the swim and bike disciplines.

A great sight to see all day was just how busy the free kids event, The Collective Kids Duathlon, was with lots of families present with their youngsters giving multisport a go for the first time, right next to the finish line.

The 2015 Brownlee Tri Attracts Thousands

On Saturday 26th September, over 6000 people descended on the beautiful Harewood Estate in Leeds for the annual Brownlee Tri.

The 2015 event was Olympian's Alistair and Jonny Brownlee's largest triathlon to date, with over 1600 registered participants.

Commenting after the event, Alistair Brownlee said “It has been a fantastic day for all involved. It is great that so many participants returned from last year, but it is also important to us that the Brownlee Tri is inspiring new triathletes. Over 30% of our participants had never competed in a triathlon before and The Collective Kids Duathlon was always busy”.

The free Kids Duathlon, delivered by British Triathlon Trust, was in high demand throughout the day, with over 300 children of all ages trying out running, cycling and transitions.
