Thank you for taking part in the first Specsavers GO-TRI Camberley at the Arena Leisure Centre! We hope that you enjoyed the event.
If you would like to be the first to know about next year's Specsavers GO-TRI or Sprint Triathlon register your interest here or alternatively see the official results
Specsavers GO-TRI Camberley at the Arena Leisure Centre is the first event of its kind in Surrey Heath and welcomes anyone new to the sport to give it a TRI!
On 10th September for just £10 you can swim, cycle and run your way to a real achievement and start your journey towards a sprint or full distance triathlon! For this event the minimum age is 16 but look out for our junior event in the near future
The GO-TRI Event
The swim will see you complete 200 metres (8 lengths) of the Arena Leisure centre indoor pool. Swimmers will be placed into a lane dependant on their estimated swim time for the 200 metres so that you can complete the swim without needing to overtake or let people past.
Once you have finished your swim you will then go through to the London Road Recreation Ground next to the swimming pool where the transition area will be. Here you will put on some comfortable cycle clothes and a helmet and head off for the cycle route.
After exiting the Arena Leisure centre you will complete two laps of a circular flat and flowing 8km bike ride around Camberley. Using the cycle lanes and wide roads this route is extremely safe and promotes stress free cycling for you to enjoy
Upon returning from your cycle you will dismount from your bike at the dismount line and run into the transition area once more. Here you will leave your bike and take off your helmet before setting off for the 2km run.
Now into the final leg of the GO-TRI, you will complete three 0.7km laps of the London Road Recreation Ground to finish in a blaze of glory! Don't forget to collect your goodie bag at the finish line and celebrate a fantastic achievement!
I'm worried that I will be the only beginner taking part
This GO-TRI is aimed specifically at beginners so although there will be some more able competitors taking part, this event is aimed at introducing people to the sport of triathlon so all abilities are welcome
I don't have any triathlon equipment, can I still take part?
Absolutely! All you need is a swimming costume, a bike and helmet, and some trainers. There are no rules on what type of equipment is needed just as long as they are safe to use
I don't have a helmet can i still take part?
Helmets are compulsory and must be worn by all competitors
Can i walk during the run?
Of course, this is your event and you can complete it how you wish
I haven't been to a GO-TRI before, what do I need to do when I arrive?
We recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the start time so that you can unpack your bike and register for the event. On arrival at the Arena Leisure Centre there will be marshals who can direct you to the registration tent and transition area.
Can i enter the event on the day?
Unfortunately entries cannot be taken on the day of the event. This is so that we can calculate everybody's start times based on their estimated swim time. This event is now sold out but we will be holding another GO-TRI next year.
