The East Grinstead Aquathlon is back. Did you miss us?

We've teamed up with Go Tri! to create an even better, more beginner friendly event. Entry is now 14 for everyone- no day license required for non-BTF members.

The event will start with a 500-meter swim in the Kings Centre pool and then after a quick transition it's a 5 km run round East Grinstead. Finally we all gather at the Kings Centre cafe for a coffee, a bit of cake and a small presentation to the winners of the various categories (we still like a bit of competition!).

For those of you who are local and would like a bit of extra coaching - whether to get up to 500m swim or to improve your time - why not join us on a Saturday morning for the clubs training sessions?

All this and an extra hour in bed (the clocks change this weekend) what could be better?
