Take on a triple challenge for St Luke’s Hospice!


The New Year is the perfect time to take on a new hobby or challenge and the Jetstream Hatch End - Harrow Triathlon could be the perfect opportunity to do this. This triathlon is a popular family-oriented race targeted at inexperienced/less-confident triathletes and non-triathletes so it is ideal for those wanting an introduction to triathlons.

The Triathlon, which takes place on Sunday 13 May consists of a 400m pool based swim (17 lengths at Hatch End swimming pool) followed by a 17km road based cycle (3 laps) and an off-road 3km run (3 laps at Hatch End playing fields). The pool based swim and less competitive, family-oriented nature makes this an ideal starter race for those new to the sport. Experienced triathletes are also welcome to enter, however early entry is advised as places are limited to ensure sufficient space for novices and less-experienced triathletes.

St Luke’s Hospice looks after people with cancer and other serious progressive illnesses. We help people feel that they matter, and that they are cared for, and that they can still make a valuable contribution to the lives of those around them. The Hospice relies on the public to raise £3.5 million each year to ensure the services can continue to run. Taking part in one of the events can be a great and fun way to support your local Hospice.

The triathlon takes place at Harrow Arts Centre Uxbridge Road, Hatch End Harrow, HA5 4EA. For more information please visit www.stlukes-hospice.org/events or call 020 8382 8112
