Lancaster University Triathlon

In memory of Andy Bailey

Sunday 10th September 2017


There will be a Sprint Distance Triathlon on Lancaster University's campus. If you have ever felt the urge to Try a Tri - now is your chance. If all three sports seems a bit much, you can enter as a team of three and just do the sport you like best.

To whet your appetite, read Lancaster University's very own published Ironman triathlete Andy Holgate's Introduction to Triathlon.

This is a fun triathlon event aimed at beginners. Enter as a relay team or as an individual.

Triathlon is made up of three legs:

  • 400m swim (in the Sports Centre pool)
  • 20km bike (closed roads)
  • 5km run

All taking place on Lancaster University campus.

Proceeds from this event will go to St John's Hospice, Lancaster and Cancer Care, Lancashire and South Lakelands.

You can also get sponsorship for your efforts, a great additional incentive to complete the challenge. with an everydayhero fundraising page. Start your page on everydayhero or download the St John's sponsorship form.

Dr Andy Bailey was a much loved and respected colleague at Lancaster University Management School from 1997-2015 who died suddenly at the age of 49. Andy will be most fondly remembered by those privileged to have known him as a scholar who was outstanding at translating the academic theory of strategic management and change management to the everyday complexity of practice. Perhaps most importantly colleagues, students, and friends would genuinely describe him as a "great bloke". He was an understated man, gracious in his time to all, kind to a fault.
