Horsham Tri Club have announced their Go Tri Aquathlon Series at The Pavilions in Horsham Park will get underway on Saturday.

It will be the first of six events primarily aimed at newcomers, beginners and novices, to provide great fun for all levels and competitors aged over 14.

The aquathlon event which consists of a swim and then a run was chosen to make it as accessible to as many people as possible.

The events take place monthly, right through to October, so athletes can keep going back to try and improve their times.

Horsham Tri Club ran six events last year with an amazingly broad range of participants, with ages ranging from 14 to 74, many of whom had never participated in an event like this before.

The first event is Saturday at midday with the other five dates confirmed as June 20, July 18, August 22, September 19, and October 24. Entry is £5.

We are delighted to be running these six events in 2015

John Birkens

Club chairman John Birkens said: “We are delighted to be running these six events in 2015, and hope to make Go Tri Horsham and other such events a regular fixture which locals can support at the Pavilions leisure centre.”
