Just to let everyone know, after much deliberation, we have decided not to go ahead with plans for a Basildon Off Road Triathlon in 2016 and for the foreseeable future.
We, as much as anyone, hate to see local events fall by the wayside but due to ever growing commitments within the club we were really becoming stretched beyond our limits to maintain a quality event for all competitors and felt the resources could be better utilised by concentrating solely on our junior event which we host on the same day.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the events team, marshals, competitors and supporters who have been involved in the event over the years and made for some great off road racing. Maybe someone out there will have enjoyed it enough to take the reigns and rekindle the event? You never know.
Of course our three flagship events, Basildon Aquathlon, East Essex Kids Triathlon and Wilkins Kennedy Grays Triathlon, will carry on as usual and we will again be running a series of GoTri events during the summer for those supporters who’ve been inspired enough to have a go themselves.
We look forward to seeing you all at some point next season and thank you for you continued support of East Essex Triathlon Club … Probably the best triathlon club in Essex.

Provisional Race Details
The event location is: Basildon Sporting Village, Cranes Farm Road, Basildon, Essex, SS14 3GR
The entry fee is: £xx with £3 returned at registration on production of a valid Triathlon England race licence.
Minimum age applies: You must be 15 or older.
Race instructions and individual start times will be published in the week before the race.
Registration will open at approx. 13.00 for a 14.30 start.
The race will begin with a snake swim (up one side of the first lane, back down the other side, then duck under the rope and repeat in the next lane), followed by a ride out to ‘Helicopter Hill’, 3 laps over the hill, then back to transition to begin the two lap run with a lap of the athletics track as a finale.
This is a fun race, and the short distances make it very accessible, but don’t believe the rumours: we will prove that Essex isn’t flat!

We will start working out the final results as soon as the last competitor crosses the finish line and hold a prize giving in front of the grandstand. There is a café on site serving hot and cold drinks and snacks.
