Market Harborough Triathlon – 7 September 2014


Well folks, Harborough is well known for been a healthy, fit and sporting town, so rightly so, when we heard that the first Triathlon to be run here was on its way, we jumped at the chance to be involved!

Archway House is in fact the headline sponsor for the event, taking place on 7th September.


I know a ‘triathlon’ is a huuuge deal for many people, but this isn’t just for athletes, amongst the different distances, there is a really popular event springing up – the “Try a Tri” – this is a chance to challenge yourself and REALLY become a triathlete! It’s a 200m swim, an 11km bike ride and a 2.5km run.

There are training plans, tips and guidance and all sorts of support available on the Archway House and Race Time websites (see footer for details).

We are also supporting an information evening on Sunday 20th July from 6.00pm – 8.00pm at Archway House, Lubenham Hill, LE16 9SZ.

Everyone is welcome but please drop us an email or call Archway directly (01858 410820) to let us know if you’re coming so we can book you in. Lots of experts to talk to and a rough outline as follows :

6.00 Introductions and event information – Harborough Triathlon Team

6.20 Training for your first triathlon – Welland Valley Triathlon Club

6.30 Easy Nutritional Advice – how to get the best out of your body

6.40 Essential Stretching – Practical session – Body Fitness Personal Training

7.00 Short Break

7.15 Posture and your Structure – back and joint aches and spinal screening

There will also be plenty of opportunity for people to talk to any of the professionals available on the evening and ask questions particularly relating to them.

Body Fitness will be hosting a number of free sessions for our list members and clients that sign up. If you are interested in joining a Body Fitness race or relay team please let us know and we will also give you details of how that will work.

Great time to set yourself a new objective and something to really strive for!
