The Jane Tomlinson Appeal is delighted to be a partner charity for the new City of York Triathlon which is an exciting new addition to the 2014 UK Triathlon Race Series.

There are 2 distances to choose from and the option to enter as an individual or relay team of three. Taking place in and around The University of York & York Sport Village the triathlon starts with a swim in the heated indoor pool, followed by a multi-lapped bike course and finishing with the run.

Places are limited to 400 and are being allocated on a first come first served basis. However, the Jane Tomlinson Appeal has guaranteed places in this event so please contact The Appeal Team for more information on securing your place.


The Spartan Race is the world's largest obstacle race designed for fundraisers of all ages and abilities. Hosting exciting obstacles and challenges this is the perfect all round fundraising event.

There will also be a Junior race available on the same date. Junior racers aged 4 to 13 years compete on courses designed to offer the appropriate level of challenge for their age category.

The Jane Tomlinson Appeal have reduced rate places available and anyone joining The Appeal Team for this event will also receive additional benefits including discount vouchers for 2XU, Newton Running, GU Energy and Sennheiser headphones.

For those wanting to enjoy the day with a little less of a challenge, we are also looking for volunteers to help on the day.
