Woburn Abbey Triathlon

You can be sure of a big cheer squad!

Join us for the Woburn Abbey Triathlon – 9 & 10 September 2017

Last year we were delighted to be selected as one of the main charity partners for the reknown Woburn Abbey Triathlon.

Firmly on the triathlon bucket-list this event is famed for it’s family friendly atmosphere, with plenty of fun activities to entertain supporters between cheers.

More experienced triathlete’s will want to tick off The Olympic Distance or even the WoBurner middle distance (half an Ironman!)

But this event is also ideal for anyone who has never taken on a triathlon before. The supportive and friendly atmosphere will have you achieveing something you never thought was possible!

Our Early Bird Entry places are now Sold Out. But we still have a few remaining charity place on our Melanoma Focus team for just £25*.
