We recently celebrated 12 months of the Monday night monthly aquathlons at Stradbroke.
These have been really fun events to deliver with a great team of volunteers giving up their time to help each month (Thanks Ben, Julia, Elliot and Mark!). We’ve also really enjoyed seeing regular participants as well as new faces each month, some taking their first steps in multi-sport.
Hannah Sangan, British Triathlon’s Regional Manager visited us in March and was hopefully pleased with what she saw. We have been really lucky to have received funding from British Tri to deliver these GO TRI Local events over the past year.
The GO TRI branding, along with British Triathlons branding generally is being replaced with SWIM BIKE RUN. GO TRI will effectively disappear from summer 2023 onwards (more on this another time).
Thankfully, we will still be continuing with the aquathlon events for another year after British Tri have agreed to renew the funding agreement – This makes a big difference when running what are effectively very small events where it would be difficult to even cover running costs.
A massive thanks also to our hosts Stradbroke Swim & Fitness Centre (Everyone Active) who have been really accommodating.
So, here’s to another 12 months!
These events are suitable for those aged 6+ through to adults and are just £5.
The next event will be on 26th June due to there being too many Bank Holidays in May. You can enter here.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and you can always check out our events diary anytime.
See you soon.
