Freebird Events deeply regret to announce that in line with public health guidance regarding the Covid-19 pandemic we have taken the difficult but necessary decision to cancel all of our events this year.

The global situation is very fluid, and we like the rest of the world don’t know how long it will all last. We are closely following the news and Government rulings on mass gatherings. Due to the severe limits placed on mass gatherings we unfortunately have no option but to cancel all events this year.

At such a time as this as we all face a global situation of unprecedented scale, we ask for your patience and understanding.

Please keep yourself and your loved ones safe and healthy.

The unique middle-distance Sundowner Triathlon based at Allerthorpe Lakeland Park just 10 miles from York, has a leisurely Saturday midday start. Allowing you to wake up and prepare for the race without the usual early morning rush!

As the name suggests, some competitors will be completing the course as the sun goes down, a fantastic sunset photo opportunity for those final competitors.

The middle-distance event comes complete with a superb post-race party and live entertainment. Camping on site is also available, so you and the family can enjoy a great weekend of triathlon and post-race relaxation in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

Included in your entry price you’ll receive a cracking Yorkshire meal at the evening party along with live music and a fully licenced bar.

The Sundowner Triathlon takes place on Saturday 5th September  2020, so if you fancy stepping up the distance why not give this one a go?


We advise competitors to arrive at least one hour before before the start of their race to ensure they have plenty of time to rack their bikes before the first wave of competitors and also gives everyone time to find their way around the course and feel comfortable with the transition areas.

Final race information including competitor’s final start times will be emailed out to you approximately 10 days before the Sundowner Triathlon and will also be listed on the website the week before the event on here so please make sure you check your time and allow plenty of time for travel to the venue.

We will be in touch before this, keeping you up to date with any race information, training tips and ideas that might just help you achieve a PB!

There is parking available at the venue. There are also changing facilities, a great choice of food plus equipment stalls at the event (just in case you forget something!)



You will wear a timing chip throughout the event which will track your time throughout each discipline, at the end of the course you can view your time and get a print out from our machine. Final timings and photos will be uploaded to our website within 7 days of completion of the event. (Please bear with us on this as due to high numbers of competitors this can sometimes take several days to process!)

In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding the Sundowner Triathlon, please check our FAQ page and if your query is not answered there please contact us  we will do our best to answer any question you may have.

Best of luck with your training and preparation for your chosen triathlon. We look forward to welcoming you to the Sundowner Triathlon on 5th September 2020
