Lancaster University Triathlon in memory of Andy Bailey - Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September 2020.

Following the success of the first event in 2016, the sprint distance triathlon at Lancaster University is back for the fifth year running - with a slight difference this year!

If you’ve ever felt the urge to Try-a-Tri now is your chance. The perfect event for beginners, you have the choice to either go it alone or why not build a team and choose to participate in the sport you like best.

The Triathlon will consist of three legs, participants can take part in the event on either Saturday 5th September or Sunday 6th September. However, all activities must be completed in your chosen day. The activities don’t have to be completed one after the other, breaks can be taken in between, as long as they are all done in that same day.

- 10 minute activity of your choice

- 20km bike, on a route of your choice

- 5km, on a route of your choice

Record your time, take a picture and email them into s.cadwallader@lancaster.ac.uk to log your results! All team members will get a medal, up to 3 per team.

All proceeds from previous events have gone to St John’s Hospice Lancaster and Cancer Care Lancashire and South Lakeland, although there will be no overheads for the virtual event, we would love to still raise some money for these fantastic charities.

We are asking participants to pre-register with a £5 entry fee. If you decide to enter as a team (max team size is 3) , the £5 entry fee will be per team. (£2.50 donation to each charity).

The £5 entry fee is the donation to both charities, £2.50 each. If you would like to donate/fundraise in addition to this you can do so by setting up a fundraising page for CancerCare click here. For St John's Hospice click here.

Individual fundraising, in addition, will be very much welcomed for one/ both charities. Over the years, the event has raised £26,000+ for both charities combined and we would love to continue to support them.
