Will you dare to Tri? 


The Hanningfield Triathlon, organised by Essex & Suffolk Water, returns for its seventh consecutive year in support of WaterAid. 

In water, on bike and on foot, you take on whatever Mother Nature throws at you and you overcome it. Few things you do in life will be quite as exhausting, exhilarating, testing and rewarding as this swim-cycle-run triumvirate of challenges. 

This year join up with your friends to form a relay team or choose to take on the challenge of completing one of the two courses on your own!


Event details and schedule

The Hanningfield Triathlon will take place on Saturday 16 May 2020 and will be held in and around Hanningfield Reservoir in Essex.

When registering for the event you will have the option to choose between two distances:

The Sprint Distance750m swim, 24km bike, 5km run.

The Standard Distance1500m swim, 36km bike, 10km run.

There is also the option to register as a team of three to take on the longer Standard Distance course together. A team of three is required to take part and each team member must choose which section of the course they will be completing when individually registering. The team relay does not apply to the shorter Sprint Distance.

INFORMATION FOR RELAY TEAMS: When registering as a team you will still be required to register as an individual. Please select which of the stages of the standard distance you will personally be completing on the day. You will then have the option to either create or join a team as you move through the registration. If you are creating a team and have decided to pay on behalf of your fellow team mates please then select which of the distances they will be completing when prompted. At check-out the total payable should be £75.00 and there should be one person registered for each of the sections of the course.

All of the money raised from the event will go towards WaterAid's work in Madagascar where currently over half the population have no access to safe water and 85% of people have no access to a toilet.
