2017 Try-A-Tri

Jersey Triathlon Club are holding an introductory triathlon in order to encourage participation in triathlon in a fun and supportive environment. The event is open to male and female novices. You don’t have to be a first-timer to be considered a novice but you cannot be an accomplished or experienced triathlete. The Jersey Triathlon Club is generously supported by the Ana Leaf Foundation which enables us to offer a varied and exciting local event programme.

The event will take place on Sunday 25 June 2017 Gorey.

Not sure? Don’t worry! We are here to help!

The first step is to come along to an introductory meeting which will take place towards the end of March – date and location to be confirmed shortly. Here you will be able to meet and speak with other like-minded athletes and the coaching team.

On signing up you will receive a 12 week training programme to take you from a complete novice to being able to complete a super sprint triathlon. The entry fee will be £30 (£25 early bird for those who sign up before 11th April) and includes the race itself, the 12 week training programme, a goody bag , a £10 charity donation and lots of help and advice!

We have chosen the local Jersey charity ‘After Breast Cancer (ABC)’ as our charity partner for the event this year.

After Breast Cancer Jersey have been helping women with Breast Cancer since 1999. ABC provide emotional and financial support on an individual basis. ABC have recently set up a 12 week fitness program for woman to regain movement and improve fitness levels after their treatment, which has proved to be a huge success. We feel this links in very well with our aim of encouraging fitness to improve health and well-being. For more information please go to the ABC website via this link:
