For many of us,
2021 represents a ‘re-boot’ of our athletic ambitions. To mark this, DRC Tri are proud to announce
the launch of a new triathlon in the region.
This is an ideal
event for those new to multi-skills competition, as well as more experienced
triathletes who want to test themselves against a competitive field.
Athletes will take
part in a pool-based 400m swim in the attractive school 20m open-air lido. This will be followed by a 21km bike ride on
mostly country lanes through the beautiful rolling countryside around Berkeley
(see link to route below). The 5km run
to finish is on a fast course on quiet roads starting and finishing in Berkeley
(see link to route below). The event will benefit from a professional timing
system and all competitors will receive their own commemorative medal.
The event will be carefully planned to take account of any
Coronavirus restrictions in place at the time with appropriate social
distancing and hygiene controls. If a decision is taken that it is not
possible to run the event safely under these conditions, then every
effort will be made re-schedule the event. Unfortunately,
no refunds can be offered in these circumstances, but all entrants will
be offered a free transfer of their place to the re-scheduled event.
Book early to be
sure of a place at this friendly and accessible event with great atmosphere and
support. Overnight camping for the night before the event may be
available. Contact email@example.com
As an approved UK
Triathlon event, places can be booked on the UK Triathlon entry system, link

This event could not have happened without the huge support of all those who planned, organised and delivered the event, so a huge thank you to everyone who helped. A few specific call outs to Martin Bragg, Tara Truman and Annette Keevil (our area leads) and our sponsors; The Pulse (thanks to Ange and team for the swimming, pool, spin room and help on the day), Emsea (our amazing medals and trophies supplier) and Sainsbury’s (the snacks).
This event was so successful we may even do it again next year!
Congratulations to club member Fred Yearsley who has just won Gold in the European Triathlon Union Long Course championship for his age group – in an amazing time of 11h 51m – over an hour faster than the second placed competitor. Well done Fred!
