THORPE PARK Resort and Tri Project will once again join forces to host a series of triathlons Like No Other across June, July and September 2017. Just 30 minutes from London, the nation’s thrill capital is an extraordinary race venue and a must-do race for both newcomers and experienced triathletes.
Following the success of the previous events we are pleased to announce that the THORPE PARK Resort Sprint Triathlon on Sunday 4 June 2017, will be Triathlon England’s National Championships.
The race will consist of a 750m open water swim, followed by a 20km bike ride, finishing with a 5km run that will take athletes right through the centre of the Park. The winning triathletes in each five year age-group will gain bragging rights to a national title, subject to them holding a current Home Nation membership.
Race Director, Matt Chapman commented:
We have had extremely positive feedback from previous competitors who love ending the race on a high in the centre of the Resort
“The triathlons have been a huge success and we are thrilled to be staging the National Championships. We have had extremely positive feedback from previous competitors who love ending the race on a high in the centre of the Resort and we hope to provide them with more memorable experiences this year.”
THORPE PARK Resort is offering triathletes and their supporters an exclusive ticket offer of just £20, which is a giant saving of over 65% on a standard walk up day ticket. This allows spectators and triathletes the chance to continue their adrenaline fueled day on THORPE PARK Resorts flagship coasters such as Stealth, which propels guests from 0-80mph to 205ft in under 2 seconds.
