Road closures will be in place in Ely next weekend when two triathlon events are held in the city.

Monster Racing is holding a swim, bike and run event on Sunday August 21 at Jubilee Gardens and Cherry Hill.

There will be road closures in the immediate area of High Street, Dolphin Lane, Forehill and Market Square with cyclists on the road and more runners in and around the area.

Organisers at Monster said: “We hope this causes as little impact as possible on the local community,

“We are hoping for a fantastic atmosphere and racing with some of the counties best athletes.

“We hope you will come along and support the event. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.”

The event in Ely is organised to give what organisers say is an iconic river swim, fast and scenic bike leg and fast city run course that is perfect for both seasoned competitors and new comers.
