Sign up now for the RAF Halton Triathlon & Duathlon

Rennie Grove Hospice Care has launched its annual sponsored triathlon challenge inRAF Halton Triathlon Finish 2015 partnership with RAF Halton. The event returns on Sunday 31 July after a sell-out last year, and online registration is now open for those who are looking to test their endurance.

This year, participants will be able to choose from three options, including a newly introduced Duathlon for those who would prefer not to swim. The Duathlon will start with a 5km run, followed by a 23km cycle and another 5km run and costs £40.  

The extremely popular Mini Olympic, introduced for the first time last year, costs £45 and will consist of a 600m pool swim, a 34.5km cycle route, and a 5km run to the finish line.

If that sounds too challenging, the final option is the original Super Sprint triathlon for £40, which involves a 300m swim, a 23km cycle and a 5km run. Team options are available for both triathlons if you’d prefer to share the distances with friends.

The fundraiser takes place at RAF Halton near Wendover and your entry fee includes a bespoke medal at the finish line, water at the transition point, full route signage and marshalling. All money raised will help fund the services offered by Rennie Grove to help give local patients with life-limiting illness the choice to be cared for at home surrounded by their families.
