GO TRI is an initiative set up by Triathlon England to make triathlon fun and accessible for all - the aim of the events is to encourage people to dip their toe into multidisciplinary sport events with the emphasis on a fun event with relaxed rules and shorter distances. It's a great way to access triathlon for the first time without worrying about all the 'experienced' looking athletes. GO TRI is specifically designed with beginners in mind.
For more information about GO TRI, www.gotri.org for tips and hints, finding your local event, joining your local club for sessions and results of previous events.
The dates for upcoming TTH/The Oratory organised GO TRI events are:
- 10 December 2017
- 18 February 2018
- 25 March 2018
Tri Training Harder are committed to encouraging everyone into trying triathlon (and aquathlon and duathlon!) and have been instrumental in setting up a series of GO TRI events at The Oratory School in Reading. The School has been a base for our UK training weekend and our one to one swim sessions, and now it is a perfect setting for beginner friendly events such as these - with a pool based swim and a grass based run - all within the School grounds.

If you're an experienced triathlete and want to support your local beginner triathlon community, then why not think about volunteering to marshal or help out on the day of an event? We're always on the lookout for volunteers on the day and this is your way of giving something back....plus, you can help to answer all those questions that you probably asked at your first event!
