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 our Driffield Triathlon and Yorkshireman Triathlon.

The global situation is very fluid, and we like the rest of the world don’t know how bad things will get and how long it will last. We are closely following the news and Government guidance and are looking at all possibilities. Currently we have suspended taking entries for our remaining two events later in the season and will make further announcements regarding these events.

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.

After a successful first year, the Freebird team are so proud to be able to launch the return of the Yorkshireman Tri – bringing fantastic long distance triathlon to Yorkshire.
Aptly named, the Yorkshireman is set in a fantastic location at one of Yorkshire’s finest stately homes.

Set within stunning grounds, amongst the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, the unsurpassed popularity for cycling and the amazing support of the Yorkshire folk, year 2 is set to build on the amazing buzz we received from this years event. We honestly believe this event is set to become one of the UK’s iconic, must do events, much of which came from the amazing support and camaraderie we witnessed from competitors and supporters. Lets build on that success.

A stunning backdrop for the swim start within the grounds of Newby Hall, a hugely impressive run through the spectacular gardens to transition.
The cycle section enters the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and takes in some of the roads that have been used on the now famous Tour of Yorkshire, whilst another section of the bike route shares roads that will feature in the elite road race cycling world championships which are set to visit Yorkshire in 2019.
Finally, to complete your triathlon a fantastic run in and around the grounds of the stately home, before entering the sensational red carpet finish for your well earned moment of glory.

Amazing roads, amazing scenery and amazing support, the Yorkshireman Tri, we look forward to welcoming you to Yorkshire.
