Sunshine and smiles as record number take part in Triathlon, Try-a-Tri and Aquathlon events
With record numbers of participants and spectators, this year’s Natures Way Foods Chichester Triathlon Series was hailed as the best yet. More than 600 adults and young people took part over the weekend, including 36 teams.
Packed with sunshine and smiles, the series kicked off on Saturday 4 July with the Junior Aquathlon for young people aged 8 – 16. The event started with a swim at Westgate Leisure’s pool followed by a run around the Chichester College campus. On Sunday 5 July it was the adults’ turn, with the full distance triathlon individual and team events and the Try a Tri – a shorter distance triathlon.
Well done to our record number of participants and thank you to everyone who came along to support the events, as well as the wonderful volunteers.
