International prize for race winners

THE winners of this year’s Erewash Triathlon will be rewarded with the chance to race in an international event in Gemany.

The winning man and woman will get free entry into the Frankfurt City Triathlon in a deal agreed by Erewash Borough Council and its German counterpart.

Cllr Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for culture and leisure, said: “We are very proud to be able to announce this link-up with our colleagues in Germany.

“It is a fantastic opportunity to further develop our own triathlon and is also a great example of how we continue to build on our excellent links with our twin towns on the continent.”
