Give it a TRI -  Fun, family friendly community triathlon! 

We are super excited to be launching this fun, family friendly community event on Sunday 28 November at Frimley Park, Hastings! This will be a timed event, but the focus is all about having FUN! We will have plenty of marshals in transition to help you and show you around as well as lots of helpers on the course.

This event is suitable for absolute beginners and for those wanting to give a super short triathlon a go. It is a nice event for parents/grandparents/siblings/kids or friends to do together and stick alongside each other the whole way or make it a bit more competitive if you want to race each other for bragging rights! Open to adults and kids aged over 8 for the "Lets give it a TRI" and "Out there smashing it" distances and over 10 for the "Super Stars" longer discipline.

We also have loads of spot prizes to give away (no prizes for placings) and these will be handed out randomly at the finish line. Each finisher gets a free lollies, Kiwi Garden yoghurt drops and a muesli bar and a there is a super cheap entry fee to encourage people to give it a go.

Floatation devices available for the swim leg if required - lifeguards are on duty. Bike course is partly through Frimley Park and partly on road. All left hand turns and full traffic management in place (roads are open). Registered caregivers can bike with kids (single file). Run course is through Frimley Park.
