Fitness fanatics and those with a competitive streak should get themselves registered for a popular race coming to Hatch End next month.
The Jetstream Hatch End – Harrow Triathlon is a popular family-oriented race targeted at inexperienced/less-confident triathletes and non-triathletes wanting a new challenge.
The pool-based swim and less competitive, family-oriented nature makes this an ideal starter race for those new to the sport. Experienced triathletes are also welcome to enter, however early entry is advised as places are limited to ensure sufficient space for novices and less-experienced triathletes.
The event, which takes place on May 13, is supporting St Luke’s Hospice again this year. St Luke’s Hospice looks after people in Harrow and Brent whose illnesses are no longer curable. They help and empower them to enjoy the best possible quality of life, whilst ensuring their family and carers are supported too.
The adult race includes a 400m pool-based swim (17 lengths at Hatch End swimming pool) followed by a 17km road-based cycle (three laps) and an off-road 3km run (three laps at Hatch End playing fields). Junior races cycle on the playing fields rather than the roads with age-appropriate adjustments to distances.
The event takes place at Harrow Arts Centre, Uxbridge Road, Hatch End, Harrow HA5 4EA. To register, visit www.stlukes-hospice.org/events/events-calendar/detail/hatch-end-triathlon
