A challenging triathlon event set against the stunning Strangford coastline
Narrows Tri Club are hosting the Portaferry Sprint Triathlon on Saturday 18th August 2018 at approximately 1245. Due to tide times this year the swim will start at low tide. The triathlon will be a sprint distance with the challenging 900m Strangford Lough swim, 21.5km bike and 5km run. Competitors will take the ferry boat to Strangford for the start of the swim. The swim will be a floating start with all participants being counted into the water from the marina which is located north of the main ferry terminal in Strangford. The swim finish will be the slipway beside the Portaferry Marina. The 21.5km cycle route is a 2 lap circuit around the scenic southern tip of the peninsula. The 5km run is a flat out and back route with views across Strangford Lough to Castleward and Killyleagh, finishing outside the Portaferry Hotel.
