Eastbourne Triathlon wins Triathlon England Event of the Year 2017
It was such an honour to attend the Triathlon England 2017 awards at Loughborough University and even more so to discover that the Eastbourne Triathlon had won!
It is one of the most fiercely contested awards in the sport – and to put it into context our second-year event was up against organisations with multi-million-pound budgets, a ton of resources and a lot of heritage – but we triumphed!
It goes to show what a ton of passion and a little bit of hustle can achieve.
The awards were judged by the most senior people in our sport and we were commended for the beauty and challenge of our course (thanks, Eastbourne!), inclusivity and attention to detail to small things that create a lot of fun – such as our surprise bagpipe band, KOM competition and family feel.
A massive thank you must go to our event team and volunteers, partners and suppliers, my family and friends and of course, our 2017 participants who rock our world.
2018 is open for 10th June and we would love to welcome you to the event. Over 50% of spaces have now gone so don’t hesitate and enter today.
