The abandoned Castle to Coast triathlon is to be resurrected next year.

The event - the first of its kind - was due to take place last weekend, taking its athletic competitors on a trip from Dorney Lake near Windsor all the way to Brighton - via a 1.2 mile swim at the lake, along a 67 mile open road bike road through the Surrey Hills and the South Downs, ending up at Brighton.

Bad weather led to its cancellation. But Sam East from the organising company Fullsteam 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% the right call as Saturday’s conditions were atrocious."

Now it has been rescheduled for July 25 next year. You can enter by visiting www.fullste.am

Mr East said: “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.”
