Montgomery Canal Triathlon
The 2024 Montgomery Canal Triathlon is organised by the Friends of the Montgomery Canal in aid of the restoration of the Montgomery Canal.
It is an endurance event along the towpath and canal – not a race – and entrants can do the whole course or only one or two sections, making it a great day out for families with children, groups of friends, experienced triathletes and those who enjoy just a communal bike ride, paddle or walk. All entrants who complete a section receive a commemorative medallion made from local slate.
The ‘marathon’ 27 mile event starts in Newtown for 12½ miles by bike, 5 miles by canoe (through Welshpool Town lock and Pool Quay lock) and 9½ miles on foot to the finish at the recently reinstated Schoolhouse Bridge, Crickheath.
Bookings are now open and if you would like to take part or have more information see https://themontgomerycanal.org.uk/friends/montgomery-canal-triathlon/
