We’re delighted to welcome Decathlon – Europe’s number one sports retailer – as headline sponsors of the Guildford Triathlon.
In their own words, Decathlon’s “main mission” is to make sport accessible to as many people as possible; and so what better fit than to partner with this fantastic sprint triathlon – delivered by award-winning organisers – which is suitable for triathletes of all abilities. The free parking, bike racks and proximity to major roads that the state-of-the-art venue offers are just some of the other event features which makes the event so accessible for the hundreds of participants who attend each year.
As well as taking part in the event, the Decathlon team will have a stall at the event for participants to test and discover their products. At 17:00 on 14 December 2017, 13 North Street will soon be home to Guildford’s first ever Decathlon store. To celebrate the opening, Decathlon will be giving away free backpacks (whilst stocks last) to current Decathlon card holders. There will also be a number of other activities for the whole family to enjoy, including: Hook a Duck, a Juggling contest and a visit from Father Christmas himself.
Guildford’s largest Triathlon takes place for a third year on 7 July 2018 at Surrey Sports Park. The 500m pool swim and 22km road bike offers great PB potential; finished with a scenic 5km trail run and medals on the finish line. A number of aquathlon events are offered for children as young as 8 to take part in. More information about the races are available on the event webpage. Online entry is now open – enter now.
