For a fourth year in a row, the ‘Aldeburgh Fun Relay Team Triathlon’ will be taking place on Sunday 16th September 2018, kicking off at 12:00 noon.
Now at an impressive total of £5,000 raised for local charities in the three years the event has been running, the ‘Aldeburgh Fun Relay Team Triathlon’ has become a popular and highly anticipated occasion within the local area, encouraging friendly competition with a wide-spread participation in sport for all ages and abilities. With the integration of local businesses and community support, the sporting event has generated an excitement in the town.
In 2017, the triathlon’s success was highlighted by the feedback it received – with one team saying “we were all spurred on by the excitement and encouragement available from organisers and spectators” and another giving the praise of “an absolutely wonderful event that has a brilliant, great, fun and tremendous vibe” along with commenting that the triathlon is “very professional and extremely well organised”. All volunteers and organisers were once again delighted with the outcome of the event. From Race Director Matt Dye; “we have had a lot of very positive feedback from teams and spectators and they were greatly impressed with the organisation and the atmosphere of the event, from the logistics of keeping 101 teams competing smoothly and safely, combined with the positives of working with the town”
