Bridge Events May News Letter

Bridge Events March News Letter

Congratulations and thank you to everyone for taking part in all our events in March and April.
We hope you thoroughly enjoyed them.

The weather was slightly chilly and breezy but still we saw some fast times being set at all the races.

Midweek Aquathlon race 1

Our first Midweek Aquathlon takes place on the 19th May in the Lake just outside Dartford.  Distance is a 750m swim and 5k run.

The race starts at 7.30pm and the run is on pavement around the Lake.

6th Dartford Bridge closed road Triathlon 21st June

The 6th Bridge Triathlon is now only 6 weeks away. There are still places availble for this race. This is the only closed road Triathlon in the South East of England. We have reduced the size of each swim wave to make sure we don’t have more than 180 bikes on the course at any one time.

A big thank you to East Essex Triathlon club for coming back to use our race as their club champs for the 3rd year running.

Children’s open water Triathlon 21st June

We will be holding our 2nd Children’s Triathlon after the adult race has finished. There are still places left but it is filling fast. We are limited in the number of children that can race as we need to reopen the roads by Midday.

The bike course for the Children is all on roads. The 15/16 age group will be racing on the full 6k bike lap.

4th Big South East swim and Aquathlon 28th June

The Big South East Swim and Aquathlon will be taking place on the 28th June. We have added a 5k swim race to this year’s event. The race will start at 9am so as to give everyone time to get there.

Dartford Midnight Marathon 4th July

The first running of the Midnight Marathon takes place on the 4th July. Over half the places have now been taken so it looks like it’s going to be a great night. There will be tea and coffee on hand all evening for everyone.

4th Midnight Man 15th August

All plans are now in place for the 4th midnight Man Triathlon, which is now half full.

This is the best value Ironman distance Triathlon in the UK at only £160 (the price has remained the same for 4 years)

We are also very pleased to announce that we have 4 people coming back to race Midnight Man for the 4th time.

All entrants so far have given me their food requests for the race. If any competitors have any more suggestions please let me know. The full list is on our Facebook page but it will be added to the Bridge Triathlon web site.

Race day help

I have a great group of people that help me at all our events. Without them it would be impossible to put the races on.

If you can help at any of our larger races then please get in touch, it would be greatly appreciated.
