River Itchen Biathlon 2018
The 13th annual River Itchen Biathlon took place on Saturday September 15th 2018
The River Itchen Biathlon is an annual charity team race from the source of the River Itchen to the sea. The 24.7 mile run begins at Cheriton and follows the Navigation Way along the River Itchen. At Woodmill the swimmers take over and race the 2.5k to finish at the slipway on Priory Road, St Denys, Southampton.
Helping to raise funds for the local Countess Mountbatten Cancer Hospice will be 12 teams with sponsorship from local companies and suppliers.
The unusual team event calculates the finishing times over the age of the participants, so the winning team is the best NET time. There is also an award for the fastest overall team, irrespective of age.
The event starts at the Flowerpots in Cheriton and finishes at the Junction Inn in St.Denys. A BBQ is kindly provided by Uptons Butchers and changing facilities donated by St.Denys Community Centre
