East Essex Triathlon Club

Given the last Government advice and the notice received from British Triathlon in regard to Covid-19, it is with regret that the East Essex Kids Triathlon will not take place in 2020. As I am sure you will appreciate this a message we would rather not send, however given the current situation, as a Club we have no choice in this matter. We will of course be in touch shortly regarding a possible change of date and the refund options available. Thank you for your understanding.

Prize Giving

Trophies are awarded in all Tristar(t) categories.

Please be patient at the end of your race; we can't start compiling results until the last person has finished then will need to deal with queries before announcing the providional results. Whilst we will award the trophies after the race, there may be challenges to those results which we will investigate before finalising the results, on this website, within 7 days. 

Trophies will be forwarded on if you are unable to stay for the prize giving.
