WHAT LAST YEAR’S PARTICIPANTS SAID...

Hawick’s Michelle Short – 2018 Female Triathlon Series overall winner:

“It has been a really good series for me and I’m delighted to have won the overall title. To win was amazing and it allowed me to finish on a high.

“This whole series is fantastic. Everyone is so friendly and the facilities are great. It’s well organised and the routes are amazing so I will definitely be back next year.”

 

Live Borders Sports Development Officer, Neil Renton:

“The Live Borders Triathlon Series has got bigger and bigger every year and I can’t thank those that turn out to help enough.

“Many of the events run over two days and it takes a huge effort from everyone to make sure they run smoothly and are managed correctly so the success of them is very much down to all those who give up their time to get involved.

“This event has really put the Borders on the map as far as Triathlon is concerned with competitors, their families and supporters travelling from all over Britain, and even from abroad to take part. We hope to build on that success in future years.”

 

Ben Sturgeon – Edinburgh.

"What an opportunity to race in the stunning Borders, laugh with fellow athletes and enjoy the camaraderie only found in a group of likeminded Triathletes. A series not to be missed."
