Take Part in the Tonbridge Triathlon 2019

Tonbridge Triathlon has provided LIBRA with five places for its annual Triathlon on Bank Holiday Monday, 6th May 2019. LIBRA supporters can enter the event for FREE and help raise vital funds to tackle blood cancers including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. This popular event takes place at Tonbridge School Sports Centre, London Road, Tonbridge.

The sports facilities are fantastic and were used by the Australian Olympic team in preparation for the London 2012 Games. The Triathlon includes a 400m swim in a pool, 25km cycle ride, plus a 5km run. You can opt to do all three elements as an individual or pull together with a team mate and only take part in your chosen discipline.

LIBRA Trustee Michael Adams said: “Thanks to the generosity of Tonbridge Triathlon organisers we can provide five lucky entrants with their places free of charge. Why not register as an individual or as a group? Entry normally costs £40 per person so if you enter a team of five this saves £200.00. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £200 per person.

“All funds raised for LIBRA will go to the Haematology Department at King’s College Hospital in London. Funds will enable world-class Professors and their teams to create new life saving treatments for blood cancer patients in the UK and overseas. Enter this exciting event and help us to save more lives.”

The event makes a splash with the pool swim starting at 8.30am, followed by an on-road cycle which will take entrants along a scenic route around Tonbridge. Finally, participants will take part in the run which is along a flat route and takes in the pretty school grounds. Winners receive a special finishing medal and certificate of appreciation from LIBRA.

Triathlon organiser Bob Bartlett said: “This is a great opportunity for LIBRA supporters to raise a significant sum of money. Individual charities have raised over £5,000 in the past through team entries of 5 people. We usually have around 500 entrants and there is a wonderful atmosphere on the day. Entries are already 30% higher for the 2019 event!

“People with a range of abilities take part, from charity participants through to top class triathletes. This event really is suitable for anyone who wants to get active in the name of a very worthy cause. Register with LIBRA as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.”
