Getting active with city’s biggest sporting event

People in Chichester are being encouraged to get active by signing up to take part in one of the city’s biggest sporting events.

 

Registration is now open for the Natures Way Foods Chichester Triathlon weekend, which will take place on Saturday, July 18, and Sunday, July 19.

 

Event hosts, Everyone Active, are aiming to make 2020’s event the biggest one yet.

 

Last year, more than 900 participants aged eight to 85 took part in a variety of races across the two days.

 

The Natures Way Foods Chichester Triathlon has been running since 2007, and has evolved from a single race into a weekend-long festival of activity.

 

Young people aged eight to 16 can take part in a triathlon, aquathlon or aquabike on the Saturday, before adults get their turn to compete on the Sunday.

 

Those aged over 16 can get involved in the Olympic distance triathlon, consisting of a 600-metre pool swim, 42 kilometre bike ride, and a ten kilometre run or the sprint distance triathlon, consisting of a 400-metre pool swim, 33 kilometre bike ride, and a five kilometre run.

 

Both races can also be entered into as part of a team, with one person swimming, another cycling and the final member taking on the run leg.

 

Alternatively, people can opt to take part in an aquathlon (swim-run), aquabike (swim-bike), or duathlon (run-bike-run) race.

 

Stuart Mills, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: “The Natures Way Foods Chichester Triathlon weekend has races suitable for all ages and levels of experience, from the beginner to experienced competitor.

 

“Although they can be challenging, triathlons are also a lot of fun – which is really what this weekend is all about.”
