Issue:- 10 July 2014


HOLLYOAKS actress Nikki Sanderson will join Benidorm soap star Phillip Olivier and 60 minute make over presenter Craig Phillips as the latest to sign up to Tri Liverpool and are preparing for this years event on August 10 to take place at Liverpool's breathtaking docklands.

The group participating in the event will join a line up of supporting sports ambassadors to include Everton first team coach Duncan Ferguson, Boxer Tony Dodson, Liverpool legend Alan Kennedy along with fellow Hollyoaks actor James Sutton, MP's Steve Rotheram and Andy Burnham, and X Factors Chris Maloney who launched the event last month with Olympian Lucy Hallat the Echo Arena.

Based in the heart of the Liverpool Dock, Tri Liverpool organised by British Triathlon in partnership with Liverpool City Council is arguably the most spectacular City-based triathlon in the UK. On 10 August 2014, over 2,500 triathletes will swim in the Wapping Docks, bike past the iconic Liver Buildings and run along the Albert Docks before collecting their medal outside the impressive Echo Arena. The official event charity for 2014 is Everton In The Community.

Distances start from as little as a 750m swim, 20km bike and a 5k run. If participants don't feel ready to do the whole thing, they can team up with two friends and take part as a team; one person swims, one person cycles, one person runs and then they all cross the finish line together!

The ambassadors are coming together this week to urge spectators to sign up and "Be A Triathlete This Summer" – the tagline for the event. Individuals can also participate in a group relay challenge led by our Hollyoaks and MP's triathlon teams.

To find out more and enter the race, visit:- Also you can follow the Tri Liverpool on twitter @TriLiverpool or visit YouTube to view the official video.
