BRIGG TO HOST WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SPORTS EVENT THIS WEEKEND
A 2019 world championship sports event is to be held in and close to Brigg on Sunday, May 26 - and is is being sponsored by a local firm.
The Lincsquad group is staging the Keyo Brigg Bomber Quadrathlon - forming part of the 2019 World Quadrathlon Championship.
Sunday's event will be centred on North Lincolnshire Council's Ancholme Leisure Centre at Scawby Brook from 8.30am to lunchtime.
Competitors will undertake a 1.5k swim in the River Ancholme (wearing wetsuits), cover 7k in kayaks on the river through Brigg, ride 38k by bike on local roads including Brigg, Redbourne and Hibaldstow, and finish with a 10k run through Brigg to Cadney and back.
For 2019 the order has been changed to swim, bike, kayak, run.
Prizes will be presented near the leisure centre at approximately 12.45pm.
We expect plenty of spectators to turn out and watch the different disciplines.
