Eight Weeks to the Viridian Daventry Triathlon
With just over eight weeks to the Viridian Daventry Triathlon there's plenty of time to enter and train for this fantastic local sporting event which will take place on Sunday, September 17th.
So, if a 'stay-cation' is on the cards this year why not use your leave to get started on a challenge, one that is do-able, gets you off the sofa and out into the fresh air. There is even a six week training plan available to help get you started or keep you focused.
You will need to complete a 400m pool swim in the Daventry Leisure Centre, a 20k bike ride around the rolling Northamptonshire countryside and a scenic 5k run around the Daventry Country Park. Every finisher will receive an iconic medal, a t-shirt and a goody bag. There will be age-group prizes and on-site refreshments for after the race.
"Now in its sixth year, the Viridian Daventry Triathlon, is quite a spectacle with many competitors from Daventry, Rugby and Northampton trying triathlon for the first time and coming away with massive smiles because of their achievements", said Garry Haynes, Race Director. "If you worry about being too old don't, our oldest competitor so far this year is 75!"
Race sponsor Viridian Nutrition, is supporting the race again this year. Tom Welch, Marketing Manager said: "We are extremely proud to be supporting the Viridian Daventry Triathlon - which is a wonderful way of bringing people together from all sporting abilities. There are huge health benefits to participating and I would encourage people - as an individual or a team - to 'have a tri' and enjoy the challenge in a fantastic well organised event."
The race is organised by Rugby Triathlon Club and is in support of the club's two charities the Local Air Ambulance and Genetic Disorders UK. Both novice and experienced individuals over the age of 15 are welcome. Individual entry costs £42.00 and relay team entry costs £65.00.
