This year will be the sixth annual Try-a-Tri novice triathlon event which will take place on Sunday 26 June 2022. With generous funding from The Jersey Community Foundation we are able to make the 2022 event even more accessible to Islanders of all sporting ability and fitness levels.
The event will include a 400m swim in the sea at Longbeach, 10km cycle from Gorey Common to St Catherine’s and back followed by a 2.5km run around the Gorey Common early morning.
Due to a generous amount of funding the Jersey Tri Club are able to offer training sessions to over 200 people. The training programme will also commence early to give islanders plenty of time to get ready for the event. The training includes:
Stage 1 (Costs £2 per session)– the “May-be-Tri” phase. This phase started on 9 January and will run through to Sunday 3 April. This stage consists of 3 or 4 weekly training sessions across all three triathlon disciplines. We hope that everybody taking part in stage 1 will move on to doing the actual event but this is not a requirement for joining Stage 1.
Stage 2 – the 2022 “try-a-tri”. Training will commence during the week of 4 April and will also consists of 3 or 4 weekly training sessions to get you ready for the actual event on Sunday 26 June 2022. The event has an entry fee of £50. The profit from the event goes to a charity chosen by the participants. Participants are also encouraged to raise funds for the charity – or another charity of their choice. There will be an option to pay an additional £50 for all the training sessions or join in individual sessions at £5 per session
Stage 3 – the “Love-a-Tri” phase. We are hoping that once you have done the event on 26 June you will be hooked! To help you stay fit and active we will offer a further three month programme of training and races to take you to the end of the triathlon season. This stage will be the start of integrating you into the triathlon club or into any of the other already existing swimming, cycling or running groups so the normal rates for these groups/sessions will apply.
Level: adults, beginner
