Congratulations to all of you - with more than 700 entrants this year - tri for life is within reach of our £2m funds raised target since we started in 2008 (and we are still counting) for our charity partners Rays of Sunshine and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Everything about Sunday was simply incredible: the weather, the atmosphere, the stunning scenic cycle route, the achievements (individual and team) and, of course, none of this would have been possible without you, our impressive entrants!
tri for life is now in its eighth year and has raised over £1.8m for our charity partners with the aim of breaking the £2m mark at the 2015 event.
We make sure there is something for everyone in the family, right from the four year olds upwards. Triathletes can choose to take part as either an individual or a relay team.
Whether you want to smash a PB, compete with friends, enter a corporate team or simply complete your first triathlon, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing time.
Come and challenge yourself on 10th & 11th September 2016 at The Woburn Abbey Triathlon.
Thank you from Rays of Sunshine & Great Ormond Street Hospital
“We have seen tri for life grow over the 8 years’ we’ve been involved and it continues to be a highlight in the Rays of Sunshine calendar. We are so grateful to everyone who took part and helped to make it such a memorable event. All the participants put so much into it and I’m sure it made the pain worthwhile, knowing that whilst they were achieving their challenges, they were also raising substantial funds for charity.”Jane Sharp, CEO, Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity.
"Thank you to everyone that took part in this incredible event. So far tri for life has raised over £150,000 in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital children's charity, which has helped to fund vital rooms within the Lung Function Unit. The unit will treat children with different types of conditions including cystic fibrosis, cancer, asthma or those in need of bone marrow transplants, and your fundraising efforts will make a direct impact to the treatment these children receive. Thank you for all your hard work, and congratulations from everyone at #TeamGOSH."Gary Bangor, Senior Fundraising Executive, GOSH.
The Woburn Abbey Triathlon powered by Prezzo will be on the 10th & 11th September 2016 for the whole weekend. Once again it will be held in the stunning grounds of Woburn Abbey.
