Air hostesses will ‘fly’ to Ilfracombe triathlon

Join Hosties 4 Heroes for the challenge of the Sea Ilfracombe Triathlon and raise money for Help for Heroes plus the Royal Marines Charitable Trust.

A SQUADRON of air hostesses will be bringing a touch of glamour to the Sea Ilfracombe Maritime Festival Triathlon on Sunday, September 2.

The event is open top all and features a 400 metre open water swim in the shelter of the outer harbour, a 25 kilometre bike ride and a 6km run.

Contestants may be encouraged by the sight of the Hosties 4 Heroes team, who will be taking part in relay teams along with serving service personal to raise money for Help for Heroes.

The triathlon is organised by the North Devon Triathletes Club, which has also chosen Help for Heroes plus The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund as its charities for the event.
