Take on a Tri to support young Deaf lives

Sportiva Events is delighted to partner with Exeter Deaf Academy and help them raise much needed funds for the Academy’s New Build – a multi-million pound project to build a world-class new Deaf Academy in Exmouth. The site will house the Academy’s school, college and residential accommodation, with the Academy creating a vibrant space designed to inspire students and connect them with the wider community. The new Academy is due to open in the 2019/20 academic year.

Sportiva Events is offering free places on the triathlon to anyone who pledge to raise a minimum £100 sponsorship (£50 for junior entrants) For further information please visit exeterdeafacademy.ac.uk/support-us or call Shelley or Sarah on 01392 267019.

Alternatively you can secure your own place and contact Sarah or Shelley to raise as much as you can.


Sarah Shaw, Fundraising Appeal Manager for Exeter Deaf Academy says: “It is great to be able to partner with Sportiva Events and help bring both the new triathlon and new Deaf Academy to the thriving town of Exmouth. By taking part in this event you really will make a difference to our inspiring Deaf students. We have a small, friendly team here at the Academy who have lots of fundraising ideas and advice and will support you all the way…”

Ben Tisdall from Sportiva Events says: “We’re delighted to team up with the Exeter Deaf Academy. There’s been an overwhelmingly positive response from local people and businesses to bringing a triathlon to Exmouth. And helping to raise some funds for the Deaf Academy’s new home in Exmouth fits in perfectly as it’s such  a worthwhile project.”

The event is open to all from 8+ years, starting from Exmouth Rugby Club. The adult races include a sprint tri and beginners’ event with a variety of traffic free distances available for junior entrants. The focus is on having a go and having some fun – all you need is a swimming costume, a road worthy bike, a helmet and pair of trainers to take part. Swimming will take place inside at LED, and whether you choose front crawl or breaststroke, all in one go or stop after every length, it’s up to you!
