Tri Sport Epping will once again be holding their annual ‘Tri A Triathlon’ on Sunday 19 June at Ongar Leisure Centre, Essex.
The club first held the event in 1990 as part of the Today’s Runner sponsored series and have continued to hold it every year since. Always full well in advance of race day it has become one of the main events in the Essex area for budding triathletes.
The Try a Tri offers first timers a chance to participate in a grassroots event with a pool swim and a club atmosphere which benefits those who may feel intimidated by high profile open water events and seasoned triathletes with their expensive bikes and equipment.
The event consists of a 300m swim with a two lap 21km cycle ride and a flat 4km run to ease competitors gently into their first triathlon experience. There are no prizes as all who take part are winners and all participants are treated to a souvenir t-shirt and filling post-race breakfast.
The club offer online entry via entry central or by visiting the club’s website, www.trisportepping.co.uk.
