The Jetstream Hatch End – Harrow Triathlon is a popular family-oriented race targeted at inexperienced/less-confident triathletes and non-triathletes wanting a new challenge. The pool based swim and less competitive, family-oriented nature makes this an ideal starter race for those new to the sport. As a popular warm-up race experienced triathletes are also welcome (but experienced places are limited to ensure sufficient space for less-experienced).
The adult race includes a 400m pool based swim (17 lengths at Hatch End swimming pool) followed by a 17km road based cycle (3 laps) and an off-road 3km run (3 laps at Hatch End playing fields). Junior races cycle on the playing fields rather than the roads with age-appropriate adjustments to distances (see table below). See the hatchendtri.com for more information.
