Tribal disability sports series to introduce their first triathlon in 2016
The UK’s first and only mass-participation disability sports series today announced it is introducing a triathlon to its list of events on 15th May at Eton Dorney Lake – the event is open to everyone, and they’re offering a special 10% discount on entries using the code 220TriathlonTFT10, valid until 29th February!
Previously all solo Tribal challenges have been para-only events; however the new triathlon gives friends, families and supporters of the series the chance to be part of the day and help raise funds for Tribal, with all entry fees going directly towards the running of their various para events.
The Tribal Friends Tri, a 400m swim, 20k bike and 5k run, will be followed by Tribal Series Para Swim, which offers a range of solo swims and relays, and Tribal Series Para Run/Push (fun runs/wheelchair races), with challenges ranging from 100m to 10k.
Paralympian and Tribal Series founder Sophia Warner commented: “We’ve created a very strong community around our events and many of our participants’ friends and families have been asking how they can support our series.
“Everyone was inspired by BBC Sports Personality winner Bailey Matthews, and our first event last August saw hundreds of people with the same guts and determination take on and achieve huge personal goals. Everyone who takes part in this triathlon will be helping Tribal Series to provide more and more people with disabilities access to life-changing challenges.”
There are four Tribal events planned for the Paralympic year of 2016, with full details available on the website. Ambassador and six-time Paralympic gold medallist David Weir and five-time Paralympic gold medallist Sophie Christiansen both participated in the first Tribal event in August and will be among those cheering on participants on 15 May.
