Challenge yourself for charity
Kings Lynn Triathlon Club is staging a charity triathlon on 23 June to encourage newcomers to the sport and to raise money for the Bridge for Heroes charity.
WNSC are supporting the event by providing officials for the swim element of the triathlon through Debbie and Samuel Chandler. There support is greatly appreciated by all involved.
The event will be held at Bircham Newton and comprises a 200m pool swim, 10km cycle and a 3km run. The entry fee is £20 and all profits go to Bridge for Heroes.
Bridge for Heroes specialises in early identification of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and offers help to troops, veterans and their family members. It is the only UK charity to offer assistance with this serious issue.
The friendly triathlon is the brainchild of Jacob Marshall-Grint, age 17, who is creating and promoting the event as part of his college work.
Jacob is working closely with King's Lynn Triathlon Club to ensure the event fulfills Jacob’s vision and meets all required elements from the triathlon governing body, Triathlon England. The event is fully accredited by the governing body.
KLTC is proud to support this event and will call on the club’s expertise to ensure the event is a success.
The event is also sponsored by Tesco Charity Trust, Winning Ways, Mars UK, Triharder, Bircham Newton Construction College, Wilkinsons and St John’s Ambulance supported by Penguin Explorers and West Norfolk Swimming Club.
