ONE OF Wargrave’s biggest fitness challenges is making a return this month.

The Wargrave Sprint Triathlon, which sees budding athletes swim, cycle and jog to the finish line, is due to take place on Sunday, June 27.

It will be the fourth to take place in the village.

“More than 100 competitors have taken part previously in this exciting, fund and challenge event which will take you over some of Berkshire’s finest countryside,” organisers said.

“The Thameside village of Wargrave is a picturesque setting for demonstrating your athletic excellence.”

To complete the triathlon, residents must swim 750 metres, cycle 12.5 miles (20km), and finish with a 3.1 mile (5km) run.

The event will take place at Mill Lane, covid-permitting.

It is open to adults over the age of 18, who can participate as individuals and in teams.

Individual entry costs £55 in March and £60 in June. Team tickets cost £70 and £75 respectively.

Registration opens at 6am and the race is due to start at 7am.
