The Try a Tri offers first timers a chance to participate in a grass
roots event with a pool swim and a club atmosphere which benefits those
who may feel intimidated by high profile open water events and seasoned
triathletes with their expensive bikes and equipment. The event

4km run to ease competitors gently into their first triathlon
experience. There are no prizes as all who take part are winners and
all participants are treated to a souvenir tee shirt and filling post
