Derby Joggers GO TRI

Published:

The Invite only GO TRI Event allowed members of Derby Joggers to get their first taste of all things Swim Bike Run.

GO TRI is British Triathlon’s entry-level programme designed to help people get more active through Swim, Bike, Run activities. The informal multisport event opened up the world of Swim Bike Run in a fun and welcoming way that left the group excited and proud of their achievements.

The GO TRI Event delivered by Derby Tri Club on the 8th September was delivered thanks to some exciting partnership work between Derby Joggers and the Tri Club. Derby Joggers are a fun and friendly group delivering several Couch to 5k sessions linked to LiveWellDerby. Vicky Hulland from Derby Joggers was keen to support some of the groups members to experience Swim Bike Run in a welcoming, non-competitive environment that would allow them to explore their potential and benefit from support from local Coaches and Club members. Working with Jenny Romeo from Derby Tri Club the date was set for the GO TRI Event.

The event was a huge success and was attended by 16 people all with varying levels of fitness and experience of Swim Bike Run. Guided through the event by volunteers from Derby Tri Club those taking part were able to experience a multisport event without the pressure of formal competition. With the support of volunteers and each other the group completed time in the pool, on a spin bike and then out into the grounds of Etwal Leisure Centre for a run to finish their event I style.

James Cole, British Triathlon Regional Manager, said: “The world of Swim Bike Run and GO TRI in particular is open to anyone who wants to take part. It was fantastic to see the partnership work that went into making this event happen and to ensure that everyone had a fantastic experience”.

Future plans are already being discussed more events in 2023 as well as more opportunities to develop this exciting partnership.
