Torbay GO TRI Beginners Triathlon

Torbay GO TRI Triathlon, Sunday 17th Sept 2017 12pm
TORBAY LEISURE CENTRE AND TORBAY VELOPARK, PENWILL WAY, PAIGNTON, TQ4 5JR

The totally traffic-free triathlon is the perfect way for anyone to start in the sport, with a pool based swim, followed by a Velopark ride on smooth tarmac and a parkland run. All staged in the beautiful and internationally recognised English Riviera Geopark, South Devon.
The longer than most (33m pool) makes for a great swim. This is followed by 5 laps on the super-smooth tarmac of the Velopark. The race finishes with a two lap run on the Parkland Course

HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE & WHAT ABOUT EXPENSIVE KIT?
A swimming costume, any road worthy bike, a helmet and a pair of trainers and you are ready to take part.  Front crawl or breaststroke, all in one go or stop after every length, it’s your choice. Swimmers are grouped by ability so it’s fun for everyone.
