The OA Announces Interservices Triathlon Sponsorship.
The Officers’ Association has announced it will be sponsoring the annual Interservices Triathlon for 2016.
Organised this year by the Army Triathlon Association (ATA), the event sees entrants across the triservices, Army, Navy and RAF, competing in various categories; Male, Female and Veteran (over 50’s) to head up the leader board.
This year’s event will be held on Wednesday 27th July 2016 at Lake 32, South Cerney, nr. Cirencester. Entrants will swim 1.5 kilometres, cycle 40 kilometres and run 10 kilometres in times circa 2 hours. Last year’s winner, Luke Pollard from the RAF, completed the event in 1 hour, 53 Minutes and .05 seconds.
Chris Bates from the ATA says of the event “The interservices triathlon is a fantastic event within the triservices and hugely important to the entrants who will have been training hard all year in anticipation of the event. We have some great triathletes within the triservices community and usually have over 100 competitors in the event each year.”
This is the first time the Officers’ Association (OA) has sponsored the Interservices Triathlon and Lee Holloway, CEO at the OA, says of the sponsorship “We are delighted to be supporting this marvellous sporting event. We have many serving and retired officers coming to the OA for our support either before or after the transition into civilian life, we are therefore pleased to have the opportunity to spread the word of the work we do through this event.
