Entries open for second, award-winning Felixstowe Triathlon
Entries are now open for the second Felixstowe Triathlon – this August Bank Holiday weekend.
Individuals and teams of all abilities can sign up to take part in the award-winning event, organised by Suffolk Tri with the support of East Suffolk Council and Felixstowe Town Council.
The second Felixstowe Triathlon sets off from the town’s seafront on the morning of Sunday 28 August.
Last year’s inaugural race was named Large Event of the Year 2021 for the East Region in the Triathlon England awards and has been shortlisted for the National Awards in March.
Cllr Letitia Smith, East Suffolk Council’s cabinet member for Communities, Leisure and Tourism, said: “I’m delighted to welcome the return of the triathlon to Felixstowe this August Bank Holiday weekend.
“Last year’s event was a huge success and I congratulate the organisers on a well-deserved award from Triathlon England. This year’s event will be another great opportunity for people to take part in a large sporting event, or to come along for a day out in Felixstowe and to cheer along competitors.”
People can now sign up for the Sprint, Supersprint or Standard distance, as individuals or teams of three.
The Supersprint starts with a 300m swim in Felixstowe Leisure Centre’s pool, while the Sprint and Standard races have an open water start with an 800m or 1,500m swim.
The swim will followed by a 20km or 38km bike route through the Suffolk countryside, before returning via Felixstowe Ferry to finish with a 3km, 5km or 10km run along the Prom.
