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

who may feel intimidated by high profile open water events and

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

race breakfast.

To help competitors prepare for their first triathlon Tri Sport
