The Vachery Triathlon Festival, taking place in Cranleigh, Surrey on the 21 July, is one of the most exciting new events on the calendar and your chance to enter for this inaugural year is running out as entries close soon and the race is close to filling up.
Entries to this festival of multisport close in just 7 days’ time at midnight on Wednesday 17th July, or when the race fills up, whichever comes first. There are just 50 places remaining so with this in mind, the organisers are urging those who are still considering whether to enter to act quickly to avoid disappointment.
On offer are three race distances to choose from, including a ‘Try-a-Tri’ sprint, Olympic distance and the tough Middle distance race.
Lucy Gossage, the double European Duathlon champion and hot favourite for the ladies title said:
“I’m really looking forward to coming to the Vachery Triathlon on the 21st July and racing hard over what looks like a tough but fair course. I’ve heard some great things about this event and the stunning race course and look forward to a tough race.”
Alex Smith, Chief Executive of local charity, Harrison’s Fund, is racing the event to raise money and awareness in support of his charity, which seeks a cure and treatment options for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He said:
The Vachery Triathlon represents a fantastic opportunity for us to raise awareness and funds.
Racers can choose to compete in either the Middle (half-iron), Olympic or Sprint ‘Try-a-Tri’ distance races, either individually or as part of a relay. The organisers are also happy to talk to clubs about arranging special start waves for them to facilitate club championships.
The Vachery Estate is located just outside the picturesque village of Cranleigh in the Surrey Hills, only minutes from London and the motorways, M25, M23 and M3.
