GO TRI Reading

@ Green Park

Welcome to GO TRI Reading at Green Park

Since 2015, our small team has been running multisport events aimed specifically for beginners, every month from January through to October, at the beautiful lakeside setting of Green Park in Reading. We've welcomed so many newcomers at GO TRI Green Park Reading, taking on the challenge of their first ever race, and we also have loyal regulars who come back year after year.

Our friendly, family-based team is reassuring, knowledgeable and here to ensure that above all you have a fantastic, relaxed introduction to multisport.

TRIATHLON UPDATE 2022 - Now Tuesday 6th September

DATE CHANGE

Very disappointingly, despite rain, the water level in the Green Park lake is too low to go ahead safely with the swim and triathlon on August 17th. This is doubly frustrating given the fact that we've missed two years due to the pandemic. These are circumstances totally beyond our control and we want to ensure that we provide a great triathlon experience, so rather than convert to a duathlon format, we are rearranging the triathlon to the new date of Tuesday 6th September. The timings and order of play will remain largely the same, but with some small adaptations to the registration and start times.

We have therefore REOPENED entries until Sunday 4th September.

This way the triathlon can go ahead with the swim portion, alongside the Green Park Swim, which we are sure is what our participants would prefer.

UP AND RUNNING IN 2022!

After another year of disruption, uncertainty and changing plans in 2021, we're very pleased to have started back again in 2022. Thank you all for your patience and understanding where we've had to cancel, postpone or amend events last year, and get in touch if you are due a deferral.

We are running our usual duathlons on the 3rd or 4th Sunday of the month, apart from August when we hold our a mid-week triathlon alongside the Green Park swim in the lake. We're thrilled that Green Park have confirmed that this will (barring unforeseen circumstances of course - as demonstrated above!!) go ahead.

The dates are now up on our "Events" page, as well as our Facebook page, where we will post regular updates in case of any last minute changes. All our events are OPEN for entries HERE!

We are so pleased to have welcomed a lot of newcomers to GO TRI Reading at Green Park in 2021, despite everything, and look forward to seeing many more this year.

Hope to see you at GO TRI soon!
