East Essex Triathlon Club


Wilkins Kennedy Grays Triathlon 2013








In July 2020, East Essex Triathlon Club will once again be organizing the Grays Triathlon, sponsored by Osborne Brothers.

The race, now in its 20th year, is an ideal Triathlon for new and experienced Triathletes. The bike course around Grays and Orsett is relatively flat and the run course around the Blackshots park and neighboring rugby pitch is a traffic free course which is mostly flat but with one small rise at the start of each lap.

Every year we see experienced athletes from across the Eastern region return to beat their previous times. We also see many novice triathletes, who choose the Grays Tri as their first or second race because of the friendly atmosphere and excellent organisation. All our marshals and organizers are triathletes and family members and they all know and understand what it’s like to compete in a triathlon for the first time – so they are all full of encouragement and friendly smiles as you complete the course.

Clubs with multiple entries will be eligable for a refund after the event. The refund will be paid to the club and it is up to each club to decide what they do with the refund. the following conditions are met:

  • Club name must be shown on each entry
Number of Entries Refund per Entry (£)
10-19 £5
20-29 £7.50
30 + £10

The Course


The Swim consists of 12 lengths of the 33 meter pool at Blackshots – swam in a snake like fashion, starting at one end of the pool and continuing under the ropes to the next lane at the end of each 2 lengths. Then is a quick exit from the pool to the numbered transition area, directly outside the pool. (Note: this year we will introduce a clear transition policy to give everyone plenty of space. We’ll provide a storage area, away from transition to store your belongings but we won’t allow any bags etc in transition).

The Bike section is 2 laps of pretty flat riding. There are 3 slight rises on the old A13 before you enter Orsett village and head back to Blackshots. A map of the bike lap is available here: Osborne's Grays Triathlon Bike Route

The Run section is also 2 laps of a grass circuit, which takes in the grounds of Blackshots park and a neighboring rugby pitch. (A map of the run lap is available here: Osborne's Grays Triathlon Run Route
