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 Osborne Bros Grays Triathon 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.
