OLYMPIC medal-winning brothers Alistair and Jonny Brownlee will return to their Yorkshire roots to hold their very own Brownlee Tri in September.

The pair, who took gold and bronze medals at the London Games 12 months ago, will take part in the event alongside the public at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, near Ripon, on September 21.

Nearly 700 people have signed up to take part in the inaugural Brownlee Tri, which will comprise of a 400m swim, a 10km bike ride and a 2.5km run.

Alistair and Jonny will also go head to head in the Brownlee Challenge, the first time they will battle it out since the former won gold in London.

Places are still available, but selling out fast.
