tat-2016-runnersTake part in Tri Sport Epping’s sell-out beginner event and start your triathlon journey with us. 

It was friendly, lots of helpful people about, I did not feel intimidated and the pool swim was a great way to introduce to triathlon.

Date: Sunday 18 June 2017

Venue: Ongar Leisure Centre, CM5 0GA

Distance: 300m swim, 21km cycle, 4km run (on grass)

this-girl-can-tatPerfect for beginners, the Try-a-Tri is also great for those that don’t compete that often, would like to get back into the sport, or even just fancy a challenge with their friends.

If you’ve participated before and would like to give it another go, then we’d love to welcome you back again.

The event is a 300 m pool swim, 21 km bike along quiet country lanes, topped off with a 4 km run, all followed by a competitor’s breakfast and a T-shirt.

Brilliant atmosphere, great organisation and excellent support from the organisers and marshals.

This year we are also offering a relay (where you compete as a team of three each taking on one of the three disciplines) and a GO TRI Aquathlon (just the swim and run).

Entries for the triathlon and aquathlon will open on 9 December 2016 on the British Triathlon website.
