The Tabern St Helens Triathlon 2016 In association with the Steve Prescott Foundation

The Tabern St Helens Triathlon 2016 In association with the Steve Prescott Foundation

On the 25th September 2016, the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) will host the Tabern St Helens Triathlon.  Last year’s inaugural triathlon was immensely successful; the foundation set up in his name had finally made the great man’s dream become a reality. The race will start at Eccleston Mere and will include an Olympic and Sprint triathlon distance.

Martin Blondel, general manager of the SPF, described the event as the hardest logistical challenge in the SPF’s history.

He said: “Steve and I had been working on the concept of a triathlon taking place in St Helens for over three years. Leading people within St Helens said it would not happen. It was Steve’s last wish that it would take place. We could have easily opted for an indoor swim but Steve wanted in true SPF style for the triathlon to be a full test and this certainly is! Last year we attracted over 300 participants, this year we are hoping that "triathletes" of all abilities will test themselves and be inspired by Steve's courage in our Million Pound Year"

The second part of the triathlon will tackle the famous “Shaley Brow” into Orrell and back down past the Lancashire Manor Hotel through Crawford Village then into Rainford High School, who will host the second transition area.  The Olympic triathletes will head back out to Crank for another loop of the cycling course with the sprint triathletes setting out from the school onto a 5km course around Rainford.  On completion of the 25 mile bike ride the Olympic triathletes will attempt the Rainford 10k course to finish the triathlon.
