Like many organisations, businesses and projects, Crystal Palace Triathletes have found themselves under increased financial pressure because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. With our club race (The Crystal Palace Triathlon) being cancelled in 2020, we have lost a hugely significant amount of income and our junior section of the club is most at risk of decline as a consequence. So, as part of our crowdfunding campaign we are reaching out to those in our sporting community to join us for a virtual sportive in aid of providing training opportunities for our beloved junior section for future years. We thought that this was a great way to bring fellow tri clubs together and we can enjoy spinning the Watopia map!
Date: Saturday 20th of March 2021
Start Time: 9:30am
Distance: 107.3km or as far as you wish, we’re just happy that you’re joining us!
