Entry Cost: £10
‘Give it a Try-Athlon’ is a physically achievable fun, non-competitive introduction to triathlons.
Starting and finishing at Fenella Beach in Peel; the events are in reverse order to a usual triathlon… so entrants only have to do the cold swim at the end!
1st leg: 7km walk/run (completely up to you) starting at Fenella beach heading north before joining onto Ramsey to St Johns railway path and finishing behind the Tynwald Inn in St Johns.
2nd leg: 5km cycle to be completed at a tootle (or faster if you prefer) along the railway path line from St Johns to Peel, finishing at Fenella beach
3rd leg: 1 width swim of Fenella beach or just spend 5 minutes in the sea squealing about how cold the water is (again completely up to you)
Once you’re out of the water, you can get wrapped up and changed under your custom Zurich sponsored Give it a Tryathlon poncho towel; collect your “I gave it a Tryathlon” certificate and head home, happy and with triathlon ticked from your bucket list.

We’re asking entrants to raise £50 sponsorship but this is NOT compulsory to you taking part, but it would help us a bucket load!
Additional information for the day
You will need a bike, helmet and a means of your bike to the secure compound at St Johns Car Park Behind the Tynwald Pub on the morning of the event between 8.30am-9.30am.
Registration on the day also happens here, where you will receive a unique number for you and your bike.
You will also need clothes/swimming costume you feel comfortable wearing. The water may be cold so we are obliged to recommend a wetsuit, though this is of your own choice.
