Skegness Triathlon 2017
Skegness Triathlon is back on Sunday 14th May - a friendly all-inclusive event for novices through to elite athletes. Part of the Lincolnshire Triathlon Series with Louth Triathlon on Sunday 3rd September.
Set from a modern 25m pool, Fresh Fitness at Richmond Holiday Park offers a great venue to start the 1st race in The Lincs Tri Series. The pool is currently having new tiles fittes & the area offers lockers and a changing area. After the swim (16 lengths) exit the pool onto grass & enter transition to grab your helmet, shoes & bike. The bike journeys along Drummond Road, on a 2 lap course between the Holiday Park and Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve on a relatively flat and straight 18k course. The route has turning points at either end that will be fully marshalled by our team to guide you along the course and shout encouragement at you. The run element is a trail run from Richmond Holiday Park and along a private road to the Skegness Eco Coastal Centre. Part of the course will be around the beautiful Eco Centre and it's wooded areas.
Skegness Triathlon Club are based at the award winning Richmond Holiday Park and will be on hand to talk triathlon as well as advise on membership to the Triathlon Club.
For those wishing to stay at the very impressive Richmond Holiday Park, we have agreed that any participants, friends and family can get 30% off the cost of your accommodation (please note camping isn't allowed at the park). There is also discounted pitches for those who wish to bring their own caravan. To book please call Richmond Holiday Park direct on 01754 762097. This is an ideal opportunity if you are competing in the event and wish to make a weekend with family or friends in Skegness.
Skegness Aquathlon is added to the 2017 lineup. So if you fancy a shorter race over the swim and run elements you can enter this race. Held on the same day, you will head from the pool straight onto the run, after collecting your trainers in transition. We think this is a great way to try a multi-sport race. Places are limited to 50 entries on this race.
