The Sunny Hunny Triathlon is coming to west Norfolk this summer.
The inaugural event takes place on Sunday 19 May. Starting at the Alive Oasis in Hunstanton with a 200M swim, followed by an 18km cycle around the town, then a 3.5km run up along the cliff tops to the lighthouse and finishing on the Green.
Jess Bailey, one of the organisers from King’s Lynn Triathlon Club, said: “There has been a lot of local interest in holding a triathlon and we wanted to put something on to celebrate the gardens in Hunstanton. This is a great way to showcase the beauty of the town.
“This is a super sprint distance triathlon, meaning the distances feel more manageable, an ideal introduction for those who have never done one before but can be equally challenging for seasoned triathletes.
“With a little bit of training, most people could complete this distance. Triathlon is addictive and the buzz you get is amazing. Plus it’s an excuse to come to Hunstanton, get a medal and, of course, eat some cake!”
On Thursday 11 April there is a free drop-in session at Alive Oasis Café in Hunstanton. To find out more about the sport in general, the event, or if you’re considering taking part, pop in between 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
King’s Lynn Triathlon Club will talk through what happens and answer any questions.
