Tri-Adventure returns under new ownership

Race report: Tri-Adventure Effingham - May 31, 2015

Tri-Adventure Effingham - May 31, 2015

Sunday 31st May, saw the exciting return of Tri-Adventure events under new ownership, with the Effingham Adventure Race in the Surrey Hills.

Trail, Sprint, and Experience events were all on offer, attracting over 50 Tri-Adventurers to navigate the trails. It was great to have the previous owners Johnny and Sam Mayne there in support, and to start the event, which saw runners set off in all directions!

The damp weather played its role in providing additional adventure out on the course, as evidenced by Tri-Adventurers returning to the transition, splattered in mud. This didn’t seem to affect the enthusiasm and commitment of any Tri-Adventurers taking part. In fact, the more mud splattered, the more they seemed to enjoy it.

It was great to see the loyalty and support from the “experienced returners”, many of whom proudly turned up in their Tri-Adventure tops. What was also great to see was the number of newbies taking part in their first ever Adventure Race. Let’s hope that these “virgins” have now got the bug and will be back for more opportunities to push, develop and challenge themselves in the future!

Tri-Adventure Effingham - May 31, 2015

People’s comments were that the course was challenging but fair, which was great to hear. Well done to the two who collected all the checkpoints within the allocated time. This has given the new organiser a good feel for how to tackle course setting in the future.

There were many categories at this first event! Congratulations to the winners, and thanks goes to Moore's Cycles who provided prizes that were awarded to the three highest scores on the day.

Photos taken at the event can be found and tagged in the Facebook album here.

The next Tri-Adventure Event is at Princes Risborough on 28th June, and I look forward to seeing you there.

Also, Sunday 13th September, sees the return of The Hurtleberry, an off-road Duathlon and Trail run. Ideal if you want to give the navigation a rest and just want follow arrows!
