People who fancy getting fit this year can set themselves a target at a new three-day sporting event.

The Burghley Multisport Weekend is a new venture by Pacesetter Events, which already organises The Burghley 7 run in Burghley Park, and The Dambuster Triathlon and The Vitruvian Triathlon at Rutland Water.

The weekend, from Friday, May 10, to Sunday, May 12, will include a half marathon, a 10km run, a 5km run, four distances of open water swimming, a triathlon, a longer-distance (100km) triathlon, and a sprint triathlon.
