Conquer the Covid blues, get fitter, meet new people and raise lots of £££s for local charities
- join the "Kensal Tri Team" & start fun training for May 2022?
- click here to see the Sept 2021 teams
No athletic ability needed: either swim, cycle or run (or do all three) with a local team of more than 200.
We will do fun local training for several weeks before taking part at beautiful Blenheim Palace on Sat 28th May, 2022
A challenge anyone can do (without loads of training or special kit)
This is an event almost ANYONE can do. Bring the family or come on your own with us.
We took the largest group of people to the event in 2021 - 197 adults and 40 children!
Three were doing their first-ever event and many of us were super fit.
The fast ran fast; the majority of us got round the best we could.
A great way to raise money
It's very easy to get sponsorship and we can help with that! (or just come join the fun with no sponsorship if you're prepared to pay our discounted entry fee yourself).
Our team members have raised over £175,000 for local charities from this event the past three years. we've found people are very happy to sponsor a friend trying Triathlon for the first time.
It's in beautiful grounds, with kids events (they can raise money too or leave that bit to the adults!) and "Sprint" and "Super Sprint" mini-Triathlon distances.
And there are Relay events - so if you don't like swimming (750 metres) you can just do the cycle (22 km) or run (5.4 km).
Meanwhile, if you agree to raise £100 or more for a local charity, The Moberly Sports Centre, Swimming Nature at the Maqam, Lizzie Barker PT, Mariangela PT, Jamie Baird PT and Gym Locomotive at the Tay on Wrentham Ave will help you get into shape!
The video above tells the story of 2019's training and event. You can also get a feel for the types of people we are by clicking here for Gareth's very light-hearted 'recruitment' video.

How much will it cost me?
Pricing for May 2022 is still to be confirmed.
Last year there was a £39 charity entry (in return for raising over £100 in sponsorship) or you could pay £125 for Sprint, £110 for Super Sprint or £200 for a Relay Team.
If you register your interest you will not be asked to pay for anything or commit at this stage but it will help us gauge demand for places.
Fantastic local benefits last year, thanks to our kind sponsors, were.
1. Up to 60% off entry price (in return for fundraising)
2. A 14 day pass at the Moberly Sports Centre to get into shape (includes group classes)
3. Discounted 'Swimming Nature' lessons at the Maqam with Swimming Nature
4. Free strength and mobility "MOT" with Maciej at Gym Locomotive
6. Free Willesden Sports Centre track sessions with Jamie Baird.
7. Free Richmond Park cycles with Jamie Baird.
8. Free lifts to Denham to try open water swimming (and lots of team runs and cycles)
9. Warm fuzzy feel from helping local charities + being part of the largest team at Blenheim
We will also pool lifts to Blenheim, help source a bicycle (note you can even ride a shopping bike), and we may be able to lend wet suits.
