Next Event: Sunday 15th July 2018
Entries Open Now!
In July 2018, East Essex Triathlon Club will once again be organizing the Grays Triathlon, sponsored by Wilkins Kennedy.
The race, now in its 18th year, is an ideal Triathlon for new and experienced Triathletes. The bike course around Grays and Orsett is relatively flat and the run course around the Blackshots park and neighboring rugby pitch is a traffic free course which is mostly flat but with one small rise at the start of each lap.
Every year we see experienced athletes from across the Eastern region return to beat their previous times. We also see many novice triathletes, who choose the Grays Tri as their first or second race because of the friendly atmosphere and excellent organisation. All our marshals and organizers are triathletes and family members and they all know and understand what it’s like to compete in a triathlon for the first time – so they are all full of encouragement and friendly smiles as you complete the course.

The Swim consists of 12 lengths of the 33 meter pool at Blackshots – swam in a snake like fashion, starting at one end of the pool and continuing under the ropes to the next lane at the end of each 2 lengths. Then is a quick exit from the pool to the numbered transition area, directly outside the pool. (Note: this year we will introduce a clear transition policy to give everyone plenty of space. We’ll provide a storage area, away from transition to store your belongings but we won’t allow any bags etc in transition).
The Bike section is 2 laps of pretty flat riding. There are 3 slight rises on the old A13 before you enter Orsett village and head back to Blackshots. A map of the bike lap is available here: Wilkins Kennedy Grays Triathlon Bike Route
The Run section is also 2 laps of a grass circuit, which takes in the grounds of Blackshots park and a neighboring rugby pitch. (A map of the run lap is available here: Wilkins Kennedy Grays Triathlon Run Route
We have a prize giving ceremony, usually within a half hour of the last person finishing and our organizers pride themselves of making the results available online within a couple of hours of the race completing (the results will probably be online before you are even home after finishing!!)
Full results will be available here shortly after the race finishes. Archive results from all our previous events are available in the results section below.
