The Arundel Triathlon is taking place on Sunday 6th September 2015. Last year’s test event was a great success and we predict it’ll be bigger and better this year! This is what some competitors said last year: ‘What a fantastic race!’ – ‘It was an absolutely spectacular location for a race’ – ‘The atmosphere at the finish was better than some of the much bigger events I’ve done where there are hundreds of people spectating ……… it really felt like the town wanted the event there’ – ‘I thought it was an absolutely fantastic event and I am already looking forward to next year’.
Happy New Year from the team at Raw Energy Pursuits. We’ll be launching our new website in the next few days hopefully. In the meantime entry for all our events remains open and we’ve had a very early surge of entries for the ETU Qualifier at Worthing so don’t miss out! More exciting news to come from REP in the next few days!
Worthing has been selected once again to host one of the qualification races for the 2016 ETU Standard Distance Triathlon European Championships; the ETU have yet to announce the location of the European event. Automatic qualification will be awarded to the first 4 eligible athletes in each age group. If you intend to qualify at the Worthing Triathlon you must register your intent to qualify by 5pm Friday 24 July 2015. For more details follow this links on the BTF website. Jon Ridgeon, British Triathlon’s Director for Major and National Events was delighted to get the 2015 calendar confirmed, commenting: ‘British Triathlon is delighted with the strong interest expressed for hosting our major events in 2015 and we believe that next year’s calendar sees a really exciting and diverse set of event venues for athletes to choose from. With the number of active triathletes increasing every year, these events will all be really vibrant and highly competitive races.”
