Last weekend's cancelled Castle to Coast sportive triathlon from the Olympic Dorney rowing lake to Brighton is going ahead - but not till next year.

The unique event which would have taken participants on a 1.2mile swim at Dorney Lake, along 67 miles of open road through the Surrey Hills and a 13.2mile run into Brighton fell victim to the weather.

Lee Brown, director and founder of Fullsteam who organised the event said: “It’s a massive shame that we were forced to cancel but the weather is out of our control. We were not prepared to compromise our commitment to the health and safety of our participants or spectators, and it turned out to be 100 per cent the right call as Saturday’s conditions were atrocious.”

“We are now looking forward to 2020 and very much hope that all those who had been attracted to enter Saturday’s event by our innovative sportive format will be able to join us next July instead. We can’t wait to share this exciting concept with the world of triathlon.”

The event will now take place on July 25 next year - early bird tickets are available now at £130 from
