The Jenson Button Trust Triathlon is back in Derby for a third year.  Competitors will get the chance to race against the 2009 Formula 1 World Champion and other triathletes twice in one day!  Eliminator heats in the morning will see all competitors racing over the Super Sprint distance of 200m lake swim, 10km cycle and 2.5km run.  Fastest qualifiers go on to compete over a Sprint distance in the afternoon (400m-20km-5km), leaving the rest of the field to battle it out for the Wooden Spoon Challenge, once again over the Super Sprint distance.

If you don't fancy doing it all yourself, get a team of 3 involved in the Team Challenge; each person takes on a different discipline, racing once in the morning and once in the afternoon over the Super Sprint distance and the team with the highest average time across both races will win the coveted Team Challenge trophy.

Back for 2017 is the Family Triathlon event, this year raising money for the Jenson Button Trust; this is a free event for children and their parents to have a go at triathlon.  Places are limited so you will need to sign up quickly - make sure you sign up all children so we have their details!

Barnardo's are the nominated charity for the JBTT in 2017 so please lend us your support and donate to support their vital work with children.
