Get involved in sport – Funding for communities to try out Triathlon

SPORT ENGLAND have awarded a grant to the area’s newest sports club which will give people the chance to try Triathlon within their own communities.

Hull and East Yorkshire Triathlon Club brings together people interested in the sport which combines the three disciplines of Swimming, Cycling and Running into one event.

The Club has recently received a £8,500 grant from Sport England and intends to use it to fund a project which will give people the chance to try out Triathlon, especially in those communities where facilities are scarce.

Club spokesman and Coach Bradley, Robinson said, “Receiving this grant is brilliant news. It has allowed the club to purchase special bikes and equipment. This equipment will allow us to set the bikes up in a static position enabling us to deliver Triathlon sessions to members of the public living in areas of Hull, and the East Riding of Yorkshire that may not have any Sports facilities in their immediate area.

We can set up a fitness class which will rotate the group between cycling and running drills in such locations as a village Halls, or large community buildings. The only thing we can`t bring is the Swimming pool”.

If you are interested in Open Water Swimming the club offers sessions from Kelsey Lake, Hariff Lane Burstwick, Hull HU12 9HU on a Thursday evening at 6pm and a Sunday morning at 9am.
