The event is aimed at the people who always wanted to do a triathlon without wanting to purchase all the fancy gear and spend weeks and weeks training. We had men and women of all ages (over 60 years old) doing their first triathlon and enjoying both the atmosphere and sense of achievement. It is a morning of fun and pleasure and is all over by 1030.

All you need is: A swimming costume, A safe bike (of any shape or size), A cycle helmet (compulsory), A pair of trainers and Enthusiasm.

What you don’t need isYou don’t need hours and hours of training (Just enough so you can reach the finish), You don’t need to be fast, You do not have to swim front crawl, You don’t need fancy equipment and You don’t need a second mortgage for the entry fee

Give it a go.
