OLYMPIC and World Champion athletes the Brownlee brothers have lent their support to a new full-length triathlon launching in the Yorkshire Dales.
Alistair and Jonny Brownlee are supporting the new Dalesman Triathlon which will help raise funds for their Brownlee Foundation.
Organisers, TriHard Events, are behind the event which will take participants on a 140-mile route through the challenging landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales.
Around 500 triathletes are expected to take part in the event, based at Ripon Racecourse, on August 23 with full, half and quarter distances available.
This will be the first full-distance triathlon for TriHard Events, who organise a series of events across the North including The Redcar Sprint Triathlon and A Day in the Lakes Triathlon.
