The annual Ponteland Triathlon is seeking entries for the 2015 event.

The sprint distance triathlon consisting of a 400m pool swim, 20k bike ride and 5k run, takes place on Sunday, July 12, at Ponteland Leisure Centre.

A great beginner friendly event, it gives an introduction into the world of triathlon.

Competitors are open to raise funds for a charity that is close to their hearts and the charity partner is the Simon Bates Foundation.

Last year the event helped them to raise a superb £25,000.

Spectators are encouraged to attend and cheer on the athletes.

There will be fresh food and drinks to purchase throughout the morning.

The race will kick-off at 8am, and should last through till 1pm.
