Osborne's Grays Triathlon (Aquabike / Aquathlon)

26 Jul 2020

Organiser's Description


On 26th July 2020, East Essex Triathlon Club will once again be hosting the Osborne's Grays Triathlon. 

The race, now in its 20th year, is an ideal Triathlon for new and experienced Triathletes. The bike course around Grays and Orsett is relatively flat and the run course around the Blackshots park and neighboring rugby pitch is a traffic free course which is mostly flat but with one small rise at the start of each lap.

This year, we are accepting entries for those who wish to do an Aquathlon (no bike leg) or an Aquabike (no run leg). We are also accepting Relay teams. If any of these options apply to you please ensure you select the appropriate box on the second page of the entry screens.

Every year we see experienced athletes from across the Eastern region return to beat their previous times. We also see many novice triathletes, who choose the Grays Tri as their first or second race because of the friendly atmosphere and excellent organisation. All our marshals and organizers are triathletes and family members and they all know and understand what it’s like to compete in a triathlon for the first time – so they are all full of encouragement and friendly smiles as you complete the course.

The event is a 'Sprint' Triathlon and comprises of:

  • Swim: 400m (12 lengths of a 33m pool)
  • Bike: 20k (Road course - *helmets are compulsory*)
  • Run: 5k (grass & park trail)
