There is a big entry for the Isle of Man Triathlon Championships, sponsored by Microgaming, at Ramsey this Sunday. Again, the event will be centred on Mooragh Park which will provide the venue for the opening swim in the lake at 9.30am precisely. This is shallow so is a great introduction to open water triathlons for any first-timers taking part. There are sprint and standard (Olympic) distance races for both individuals and teams. Sprint distances are 750 metre swim, 20km cycle and 5km run.
