35th East Grinstead Triathlon will take place on
18th July 2021
Suitable for beginners through to seasoned triathletes this is one of the friendliest most scenic races in the calendar!
After a 400m pool swim you will cycle 26k on an undulating route through the villages of Forest Row, and Hartfield, coming back to East Grinstead on a fast flat stretch, before running 5k (two laps) around East Grinstead town to finish outside the starting point of Kings Leisure Centre.
Ladies Try-a-Tri & Youth Race
Many of our female members took the first step on their triathlon journey by signing up to our Ladies Try-a-Tri, and are now competing in Ironmans, International races or just having fun keep fit by joining in club sessions.
A shortened version of the Sprint Tri, you start in the pool swimming 200m (8 lengths), it doesn't matter what stroke, or how long it takes you - you will get lots of encouragement and support through every length. You will then cycle 11km though the village of Ashurst Wood and back into East Grinstead before setting out on a 2.5km run around the scenic town of East Grinstead with marshalls cheering your efforts to get you across that finish line.
