It's that time of year (not Christmas, yet). Many of us are already looking to our events calendar for 2019 and what better way to kick things off than with MedwayTri's very own Aquathlon?
As in previous years, this event is aimed at entrants of all levels. There is a new adult race, with a distance of 150m swim and 1500m run; great for those taking their first tentative steps to multi-sport (or perhaps those wanting a target to get over the holiday excesses). The other categories are the same as last year. Ranging from 150m/1500 to 500m/5k, there is something for everyone and for ages 9 plus.
The course consists of a pool-based swim, followed by a run around the athletics track, and both have excellent viewing facilities for friends and family. All athletes will receive a well-earned finishers' medal. This is designed to be a fun event, and is a great opportunity to have your first go at a multisport race, but it still provides plenty of challenge for the seasoned competitor.
As this is a mid-winter event, the swim and run will not be continuous, but managed as two separate events with a break in between. The race will be professionally chip-timed and is a great way to kick off your early season preparation or to try out multidiscipline sports as a beginner.
With great facilities for both athlete and spectator, why not add The Medway Tri Aquathlon to your early-season race calendar.
