April - Tri Dog Events Weekend

29 Apr 2017 - 30 Apr 2017

Enter Now for the

Tri Dog Triathlon & Duathlon Weekend 2017 

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 has been the site of several Canicross Midlands events. With two stunning lakes, this idyllic venue offers a picturesque setting for our triathlon, with clean clear waters and a flat(ish) course through a range of terrain.

Tri Dog provides a fantastic multisport event for participants and we encourage novices and experienced competitors to take part in this fun and challenging experience. Whilst our team are passionate about this first British dog and human triathlon, we will also be offering 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 and cross your next finish line with Tri Dog
