Bury St Edmunds will relaunch its triathlon festival next year, which will be held in support of Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS).
Organisers HaverSports has announced that Greene & Greene Solicitors will sponsor the event, which will see athletes swim, cycle and run around the town.
The event was first held in June 2016, with the festival offering a choice of triathlon, duathlon and aquathlon, and is now returning after a one-year hiatus.
Jack Tappin, HaverSports director, said: “It’s great that we’re able to bring back St Eds’ Tri with these new partners, and we’re looking forward to delivering an even bigger and better event than when it was first held in 2016.
“We’ll have different races and distances available to suit all ages and abilities, and being held just after Easter offers triathletes the perfect way to start their 2018 tri season.”
