Wilkins Kennedy Grays Triathlon
15 Jul 18
On 15th July 2018, East Essex Triathlon Club will once again be hosting the Wilkins Kennedy Grays Triathlon.
The race, now in its 18th 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.
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)

Entry fee: £35 (£3 returned on day to those with British Triathlon Race License)
Withdrawals will be accepted up to 30th June 2018 with entry fee refunded less £5 admin charge.
Registration will open from approx 6am on the morning of the race and the first person will start at 7am.
