Community News & Views | Last calls for triathletes

There’s still time for budding triathletes to get involved in one of the city’s biggest sporting events.

 

People in Chichester are being urged not to miss their chance to take part in the 2019 Natures Way Foods Chichester Triathlon Series, which is taking place over this weekend.

 

Last year, more than 900 participants aged eight to 85 turned out to compete in a variety of races across the two days, and this year event hosts Everyone Active are hoping for even bigger numbers.

 

Now in its 13th year, the Chichester Triathlon has evolved from a single race into a weekend-long festival of activity. Young people aged eight – 16 can take part in either an aquathlon or triathlon on the Saturday, before adults get their turn to compete on the Sunday.

 

Those over the age of 16 can get involved in a Sprint Distance Triathlon, consisting of a 400-metre pool swim, 33-kilometre bike ride, and a five-kilometre run. Alternatively they can opt to take part in an Olympic-distance race featuring a 600-metre pool swim, a 42-kilometre bike ride, and a 10-kilometre run. Both races can be entered into as part of a team or individually.

 

Competitors can also take part in an aquabike race, consisting of a 400-metre swim and 33-kilometre bike ride, or an aquathlon, which will see competitors swim the same distance but followed by a 5-kilometre run. A Duathlon race, which involves a 5km run, followed by a 33km bike ride, and then another 5km run, is also an option.
