The East Grinstead Triathlon
15th May 2022
Congratulations to all our Competitors!
Suitable for beginners through to seasoned triathletes, this is one of the friendliest most scenic races in the calendar, now in our 36th year!
After a 400m pool swim at Kings Leisure Centre, 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.
We are offering club waves again this year, which have been very popular in the past. If a number of athletes are entering from the same club and you would like to start together in a dedicated wave please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your club name and entrant names. Note – you must still enter as normal through the BTF website entry page (linked above).
Ladies Try-a-Tri & Youth Race
Many of our female members took their first steps on their triathlon journey by signing up to our Ladies Try-a-Tri, and are now competing in full Iron-distance events, International races, or just having fun and keeping fit by coming to our club training sessions.
A shortened version of the Sprint Tri, you start in the pool swimming 200m (8 lengths). It doesn't matter 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 you all the way to get you across that finish line.
A race recce will take place on the morning of 30th April 2022 designed for those that might not have done a triathlon before, or would like to get to know the course or get some friendly transition advice. Please email email@example.com if you would to attend. Places are limited. Further information to follow nearer the event.
