Island Races - Mersea Island - Try a Tri
24 Jun 17
Island Races is held on Mersea Island. The Island is situated on the Blackwater Estuary on the East Coast of England in Essex, approximately 8 miles from the nearest town Colchester and 60 miles from London. Mersea is a beautiful Island surrounded by stunning beaches, coastal paths, cliffs and marshland spoiled with wildlife. East Mersea boasts the Cudmore Grove Country Park that teems with wildlife, in particular migrating birds. It is also famous for its eroding cliffs that have been known to expose both bear and mammoth fossils. West Mersea is the bigger of the two villages and is also the hub of the sailing and fishing communities. There are creeks littered with moored yachts and fishing boats and the surrounding marshland is protected for its populations of birds and occasional seals.
The Try-a-Tri is effectively a Super Sprint Triathlon comprising a 400m Swim, 10km Bike and 2km Run. It is an ideal first triathlon as the distances are very friendly for first timers. However a Super Sprint is also a challenging distance for the seasoned competitor. Just like any sprint distance it is a challenge to maintain a high intensity throughout no matter your level of fitness. This event will take place on the beach off Coast Road.
The chosen charity for this event is Re-Cycle. Please see our website www.islandraces.com for more information.
