MORE than 400 triathletes will descend on Handbridge, Chester, this Sunday to take part in the Deva Triathlon.
The event, sponsored by Mollington-based firm Eureka Cycle Sports, has attracted entries from across the country.
The action gets under way at 8am at the Groves bandstand when the hardy competitors will take the plunge for the first leg of the event – a 1,500m swim up and down the Dee.
Competitors will then head for the field at Queens Park High School to grab their bikes for a 40km ride on a circuit taking in Eccleston, Rosset, Marford and Borras.
After returning to the school to drop off their bikes they embark on the final leg – a two-lap, 10km run through the Meadows and Grosvenor Park, finishing back at the school.
There will also be plenty of other attractions at the school, such as a bouncy castle and refreshment provided by Handbridge business Delikate.
The school is also hosting a small expo showcasing the latest equipment for triathletes.
