    As before, the swims will be held in the heated indoor pool followed by cycling and running legs on the track outside.

    Keith Hancock, race director of UK Triathlon, said: “We were delighted the first City of York Triathlon was so well received and we are really looking forward to returning to York Sport Village for an even bigger event in 2015.

    “It is also excellent the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, which supports the work of so many worthy causes, is the event’s official partner charity.”

    Siobhan Curtis, the appeal’s legacy manager, said: “An event like the City of York Triathlon provides a great opportunity for people to test themselves in a well organised challenge and raise money for charity into the bargain.

    “We were really pleased to be involved with this year’s first triathlon, which was a huge success, and next year’s event promises to be even bigger and better.”
