30th Inter-Services Triathlon brings top athletes together to compete for the coveted Team Cup.
Organised this year by the Royal Navy Triathlon Association, the Army, Navy and RAF will compete at the annual event, taking place on 25th July 2018. There are individual and team categories, including Male, Female and Veteran. In addition, the Fire, Police and Prison Service will each enter guest teams.
Competitors will swim through 1.5 km of open water, cycle 41 km of tricky terrain and finish the course with a 10 km run. Last year the prizes were split between the RAF and Army with the Army taking home both team cup trophies.
Royal Navy Commander Toby Clay said: “I am pleased that the OA is once again supporting the Inter-Services Triathlon, especially on our 30th anniversary. Every year the standard of competition increases with each Service determined to win. This year could be the closest yet.”
Lee Holloway, OA’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are delighted to sponsor this great Inter-Services sporting championship for a third year. Completing a triathlon requires high levels of physical fitness, mental determination and self-discipline. These are qualities that will support Service leavers when they make a successful transition into civilian life.”
