Now in their seventh year, Dengie Events have released their schedule of Essex-based triathlons for 2017, with sprint, Olympic and middle-distance racing all featuring.
The Big East Triathlon kicks off the Dengie calendar on 21 May 2017 in Bradwell-on-Sea, Essex. The event gives entrants a choice of Middle Distance (1.6km swim/82km cycle/20km run) or Challenge Distance (800m swim/43km cycle/10km run) and is open to individual athletes and relay teams.
The Fambridge Yacht Haven Half Iron Triathlon takes place on 2 July 2017 in North Fambridge, Essex. This welcoming and friendly middle-distance event sees entrants take on a 1.9km river swim next to Blue House Farm Nature Reserve, 90km cycle in the peaceful Essex countryside and an 18km run around North Fambridge village.
The ever-popular Maldon Triathlon takes place on 30 July 2017 and the race organisers are expecting entries to sell swiftly. The beginner friendly Maldon Triathlon is based around the Promenade Park and Hythe Quay over Sprint (750m swim/28km cycle/5km run) and Olympic (1.5km swim/45km cycle/10km run) distances.
