Sri Chinmoy Somerset Sprint Triathlon
28 May 17
"The perfect start to your racing season"
A new event for 2017, the Somerset Sprint Tri is held on the same day as our ever-popular beginner's "Try-a-Tri" event at the stunning seafront location of Portishead Lake Grounds / Portishead Open Air Pool. The Sprint Race goes off first, starting at 8am, with a multi-wave pool swim in the unique 33m open air pool on the shore of the Bristol Channel. Straight after that comes a 25K bike course with stunning views from a ridge route overlooking the sea, 3 challenging climbs and a route that sticks to quiet roads (B roads & minor roads between Portishead and Walton Village). The run course is a 4-lap loop around Portishead Lake Grounds - fast and flat with lots of opportunity for your supporters to cheer you on from the Esplanade (they have a choice of seafront cafes to relax in while you're out on the bike!).
If you've done our Try-a-Tri before, the Sprint Tri is a great way to take a step up in distance while still enjoying the low-pressure environment of a small event. The max entrants for Sprint & Try-a-Tri combined is 200 so there will be plenty of space in Transition and no problem parking near the start. This race is also a perfect warmup / sharpener for the Bristol Triathlon in June.
Included in the event price are a memento (medal) and tee shirt for all finishers. Every year the Try-a-Tri event sells out so although the Sprint event is a new race, enter asap to avoid missing out. Also please note that for entries after 20 April we cannot guarantee your first choice of tee shirt size - tees are ordered 20 April so they arrive in time for race day - if you enter later we'll try to get the size you want but failing that we'll have unisex M or L tees available so everyone gets one.
