Budding triathletes are being encouraged to saddle up, get on their running shoes and take to the pool in preparation for the inaugural Berkhamsted Triathlon which takes place next year.

The starter’s gun will be fired on Sunday, April 26 2015 for the race which is based at the Knox Johnston Sports Centre in Berkhamsted.

The event is being organised by the Berkhamsted Triathlon team, who have a wealth of triathlon experience – both as competitors and coaches.

The driving force behind the bonanza is ultra marathon man Cliff King who has more than 15 years’ experience in specialised sports training, conditioning, flexibility, and endurance.

Event organiser Cliff said: “Whether you are going all out to win, aiming for a personal best, or simply anticipating the satisfaction of crossing the finish line, we hope that you enjoy the event as much as we intend you to!

“On completion, each competitor will receive a participant pack containing various goodies courtesy of our sponsors. There will also be bananas, sweets, biscuits and water at the finish line.

“Many thanks to our sponsors, Berkhamsted School, Dacorum Borough Council, Hertfordshire Police, Cliff King Events Crew and our volunteers, without whom the event would not be possible.”
