Stradbroke Triathlon & Junior Aquathlon 2019

May 18th and 19th 2019 saw Can But Tri deliver our very first event – and what an event it was!

We took over the event from Active Outdoor Sport who had organised it since inception in 2015, so we had a tough act to follow!

Hopefully we delivered a great weekend of racing including a super sprint triathlon both Saturday evening and again on Sunday morning followed by a swim-run event on Sunday afternoon for children aged 8-14 years old.

160m swim in the Stradbroke Pool was the first challenge competitors faced in the Tri events

There was some close racing on both days, which was thankfully blessed with perfect weather and it was great to see so many people take on a multi-sport challenge for the first time!

The 17km bike course took entrants on a scenic loop around the Suffolk lanes

The feedback received both during and after the event was so positive – we were thrilled with how it went and that everyone enjoyed themselves.

We would like thank all those who made this a great event including the competitors, our race official Di Swanepoel and of course our amazing team of Hi-Vis Hero’s who keep everything running smoothly.

Our first finisher described the run 3km run as ‘tough but a great run route’

We would also like to thank Stradbroke Swim & Fitness Centre, the Community Centre, Stradbroke High School, Fressingfield Scouts, Tesco, Morrisons and Safeway for providing fruit/water and to the local community as a whole for making us feel so welcome.

We are already looking forward to the 2020 Stradbroke Triathlon and Junior Auauthlon!
