Sundried Southend Triathlon 28th May 2017

by Alexandra Parren

Southend Triathlon

The challenge of triathlon is coming to Southend 2017, sponsored by Sundried.

Southend triathlon will take place on 28th May 2017, a sprint distance event with a 750m open water swim, 20km ride around local country roads and a sea air 5km run along the coastline.

This is a perfect event for athletes looking to achieve a personal best or first timers looking for a simple course to enter the world of triathlon.

Sundried’s sprint triathlon is taking place to raise funds for charity Haven’s Hospice.

Haven’s Hospice makes “Every Day Count" for children & adults with life-limiting illnesses in Essex. When a family has been told that there’s no cure for their loved one’s illness and all that can be done is to make life comfortable, Havens Hospices can help.

Both hospices help by controlling pain and medication, offering respite and caring for adults, babies, children and teenagers at the end of their lives. This free, specialist care is there for as long as it’s needed, within the home and at the charity’s two hospices.

Havens Hospices is a registered charity – not part of the NHS – and receives limited government funding. The organisation must raise over £100,000 every week to be there for everyone who needs its care.

After researching our local area and discovering there is no longer a triathlon present, Sundried wishes to return the sport of triathlon to Southend, particularly as it’s gaining popularity after the Brownlee brothers' outstanding success in this year's Olympics.

The event aims to encourage triathletes and first-time athletes in the local area to compete on their home turf and raise money for charity. In the future, we look to bring an extended event, with a full Olympic distance and fitness show.
