The Beccles Triathlon is first and foremost a superb sporting event for Beccles and the region’s top Triathletes, as well as anyone who wants to try a Tri for the first time.
But we also hope it’s going to raise vital and much needed funds to keep the community open air swimming pool, Beccles Lido, open.
If you’d like to be sponsored for the Triathlon in aid of the Lido, then we have a Virgin Money Giving site which makes it really easy for you to publicise yourself and raise sponsorship online. Just click here and start fundraising – every £1 raised really does make a difference! (Quick tip: we recommend you set your page up as a ‘Personal Challenge’)
We are currently looking into whether we will have any Beccles Triathlon merchandise available before or during the event but the BEST way to get to wear the COOLEST hoodies and swimming, cycling, running and Triathlon kit in the region is to join the Beccles Triathlon Club.
We had 4 fantastic VOLUNTEER photographers at the Lido and out on the course during the 2017 Beccles Triathlon. All of the pics are on our Facebook page here and here) (and available to download in lo-res FOR FREE!) and also HERE (where they are available to download in hi-res for a small fee, all of which will go towards the running costs of the Triathlon, with any profits going towards the upkeep of Beccles Lido).
Running a Triathlon isn’t cheap, and if you are a local company who can help with any of the logistics or expenses, or with prizes for goody bags, please click here and let us know – we’d love to here from you. We’ll make sure you get lots of exposure on the website and in all of our PR.
So first and foremost, enjoy our Beccles Triathlon. And if you can help us raise some funds for the Lido as well, very many thanks!
A number of stalls were on poolside in each of our Triathlons for all to browse and enjoy, and each year we have been joined by TriHarder – Norfolk’s first dedicated triathlon shop, selling all manner of equipment, including race belts, goggles, helmets and shorts (just in case you forget anything!).
All profits to Beccles Lido, registered Charity No 1132102, with a contribution to event organisers Beccles Triathlon Club
