A few weeks ago, Glen and I attended the Triathlon Show and London Bike Show at the Excel.
We spent a few hours browsing the stands in the exhibition halls. There was plenty to see- everything you could possibly need for swimming, cycling and running. As is usual with these shows, there were a ton of competitions and giveaways running on each stand. There were some fantastic prizes on offer… bikes, kit, equipment, training holidays, entry to events… You write down your name and contact details, but never really expect to hear anything again. Does anyone ever win these competitions?
Turns out they do, as a week later I had an email to confirm I won the prize draw on the UK Triathlon Series stand!
I was thrilled to find out that I had won a year’s worth of entries to any events on the 2015 UK Triathlon National Event Calendar!
However, after checking my diary, I found that most of the events clash with triathlons I’ve already signed up to, and it wouldn’t be feasible to add even more races into my calendar.
The race organisers have kindly let me offer up the prize to another lucky winner. You will win entry into the following races:
York Triathlon- Sunday 26th April
Stratford 220 Triathlon- Sunday 10th May
Cheshire Triathlon- Sunday 31st May
Henley Triathlon- Sunday 21st June
South Coast Triathlon– Saturday 4th July
South Coast Run- Sunday 5th July
Birmingham Triathlon- Sunday 19th July
People’s Triathlon- Sunday 9th August
Ultimate Triathlon- Sunday 16th August
Ultimate Half Triathlon- Sunday 16th August
City of Birmingham Run- Sunday 6th September
North West Triathlon- Sunday 13th September
Warwickshire Triathlon- Sunday 27th September
A range of distances are on offer from super-sprint up to Ironman. Sounds like an amazing series of events- I’m disappointed that I can’t do them this year!
More information on all of the events is available on the UK Triathlon Events website.
For you chance to win up to one year’s worth of events entries simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email address and ‘Excel Prize Draw’ as the subject header. Winners will be picked at random and notified by email. Closing date is Monday 16th March.
