Tri Lakeland Junior Triathlon – Sunday 28th June 2015

Tri Lakeland Juniors are pleased to announce that their Children’s Triathlon this year will be held on Sunday 28th June 2015. The event will be hosted by Netherhall Community Sports Centre in Maryport for a fourth year.

This friendly event is run on the West Coast of Cumbria and is an ideal for those just starting out in Triathlon or the more experienced athlete, there is something for everyone beginning with the Super Sprint race distance for those want to Try a Tri, up to the standard distances for those that want to push themselves that bit harder. You do not need to be a member of a Triathlon Club or a member of British Triathlon to come and join in at this event.

Our rolling registration and multiple race distance specific briefings, will allow triathletes to turn up for their event in a just in time manner thus avoiding the hanging around that can occur at some events. We are currently planning that registration will be open from 10.45am closing at about 2.55pm allowing triathletes that are racing later in the day to arrive later.

The first race is scheduled to start at 12.30pm and will run in the order shown under “Race Distances” below. The last race is scheduled to start at approximately 3.30pm, but this will be driven by the number of entrants we have.

Spectators will be able to get close to the action, via marshaled course crossing points, and will have hot and cold food available to purchase on the day.

Any type of bicycle can be used to do this event (road bike, mountain bike, hybrid etc…) as long as the bike is road worthy and you have a helmet.

THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED TO ENTRIES
