Tri Dog Events Weekend, September 2018

29 Sep 2018

Enter Now for Tri Dog's Multiple Event Weekend.

Triathlon, Aquathon, Team Triathlon, Duathlon and Canicross events all available.

29th & 30th September

 

'Dog with a Bone' Discounts finish on Saturday 25th August.

Entry Close on Saturday 22nd September at Midnight.

Our venue for this awesome event will be Box End Park (Bedfordshire, England). Home of the Bedfordshire Triathlon, the World Cup Quadrathlon and the unique Ropes & Wires competition; Box End is considered the place to water ski, cable tow, wake board, and even has its own Aqua Park. The park runs its own Off Road Triathlon and Aquathlon Series, holds regular open water swimming sessions, hosts the Galeforce Events and with two stunning lakes, this idyllic venue offers a picturesque setting for our event, with clean clear waters and a flat(ish) course through a range of terrain.

Tri Dog provides a fantastic multisport event for all participants and we encourage novices and experienced competitors to take part in this fun and challenging experience. Whilst our team are passionate about this dog and human triathlon, we also offer categories to suit complete novices to age group champions, plus options for those of you, or your dogs, who don’t fancy the traditional swim, bike, run format!

Come and Tri, cross your next finish line with Tri Dog
