EVENT OVERVIEW

GRAND TRIATHLON

Do you love swimming, cycling and running? Put together into a triathlon, they are three times the fun! Experience the thrill of the Uk’s fastest growing sport with us at the 1st Grand Triathlon. Organised by INTOTRI and kindly supported by GASPA, the event is open to all children in Year 3-6 at Grand Avenue Primary. Bring your parents along to cheer you on and help us create a fantastic atmosphere for all participants along the closed road circuit on school grounds.

Start: 3:30pm

INTOTRI – THE WORLD’S 1ST FREE TRIATHLON SERIES

Triathlon, isn’t that a sport for olympians that requires super human fitness and expensive gear?

INTOTRI was founded to show a completely different side of the sport. People of all ages, from novice to running mermaid on wheels, can participate in our triathlon events which emphasise finishing over winning. The focus is on challenging yourself, having fun and embracing a healthy lifestyle. So get INTOTRI with the “parkrun of the triathlon world”, a grassroots initiative powered by volunteers.

DO I NEED EXPENSIVE KIT & WHAT ABOUT FITNESS?

A swimming costume, any road worthy bike, helmet and a pair of trainers and you are ready to get INTOTRI. Front crawl or breaststroke, all in one go or stop after every length, the choice is yours. We group swimmers by ability to make it fun for everyone.

WHAT ARE THE DISTANCES?

  • Junior Short (Year 3-4) – 60m swim – 1.4k bike – 1k run
  • Junior Long (Year 5-6)  – 60m swim – 2.1k bike – 1.5k run

PRICING

HELP OFFSET RUNNING COSTS

While our school events are free to you, building and running INTOTRI events and the infrastructure behind them is associated with significant costs. To ensure our events are enjoyable for all and to enable us to continuously grow the family of INTOTRI events, we rely on donations from the communities we serve. If you believe into the work we do, please support us through a donation – no amount is too small.

From the world’s 1st FREE Triathlon Series to pioneering triathlon at the Primary School Games, INTOTRI rewrites the playbook for grassroots sports in the UK. Removing social and financial barriers, our charity creates a strong network that empowers people of all ages and abilities to challenge themselves and take up regular exercise.

Give hundreds of kids and novices the opportunity to experience the thrill of triathlon for free. Donate to INTOTRI or sign up for a charity place. With a minimum fundraising target equivalent to the regular entry fee, you won’t be left out of pocket while allowing us to claim gift aid on donations received from UK taxpayers.

EVENT INFORMATION

Taking on three disciplines is a test of skill and stamina, especially for the novices (80%) who get their first taste of triathlon at our events. Being cheered on and receiving directions from a marshal volunteering with us is what keeps them going and coming back for more. Volunteers are the face and driving force behind INTOTRI.

Every single event in INTOTRI‘s FREE Tri and School Tri Series requires 15+ volunteers. Be one of them and make a difference to hundreds of kids and seniors. Without your help, we can’t live up to our motto: open for all, affordable for everyone. Thank you for your support.
