East Essex Kids Triathlon 2014



This Triathlon lark is not just for the adults!!

Our children’s triathlon will again take place at the Basildon Sporting Village in 2014. We will be using one of the 25 metre pools and the athletics track within the complex, and a looped bike course and out-and-back run in the surrounding Gloucester Park. One of the main aims of our children’s events is to encourage newcomers into the sport and we are confident that, once again, we will see many children trying a triathlon for the first time.

This race will also be one to remember for family and friends as well as those racing: the swimming pool has a large seating area and the final stage of the run is a lap of the athletics track in front of the seated and covered grandstand. We intend to make use of the PA system in the grandstand again so that we can get a ‘big race’ atmosphere going and will be encouraging all the spectators to make lots of noise.
