Are you ready to try a tri?

We're giving you the chance to win a place at the Blenheim Palace Triathlon which takes place on June 1st and 2nd.

With a choice of two distances, it's the perfect event for beginners. Choose from:

  • Sprint: 750m Swim, 19.8km Cycle, 5.4km Run
  • Super-Sprint: 4000m Swim, 13.3km Cycle, 2.9km Run

Plus, to make it even easier for you, we'll kit you out with everything you need, courtesy of event sponsors Zone3.

All you need to do is complete the distance of at least two legs of the sprint triathlon. You can choose which two legs you complete, out of swim, bike and run. We'll give you a month to do it and you don't have to do it all in one go. 

You'll need to make sure your activities are recorded on Strava and join the Wiggle Running Club so that we can check!

The Prize

One entry to the Blenheim Palace Triathlon

Choose from Sprint or Super-Sprint distance on June 1st or 2nd. The perfect introduction to triathlon.

 

 


Zone3 Advance Wetsuit

The perfect entry-level wetsuit for your first triathlon. Keep those muscles warm in the water without sacrificing movement. Engineered for stretch and support exactly where you need it, plus the use of SpeedFlow fabric to reduce drag will make the swimming leg a breeze.

The winner will receive either the Zone3 Men's Advance Wetsuit or the Zone3 Women's Advance (you'll have the chance to specify preference if you win).

 


Zone3 Active Tri Suit

Supportive compression and silicone leg grippers ensure a comfortable and secure fit. The tri-specific pad gives you enough cushioning in the bike but won't distract you during the swim or the run.

The winner will receive either the Zone3 Men's Activate Trisuit or the Zone3 Women's Activate Trisuit (you'll have the chance to specify preference if you win).


Zone3 Silicone Swimming Cap

Weighing only 48g, this 100% silicone swimming cap has been designed to be comfortable and easy to take on and off.

 

 

 


Zone3 Vapour Polarised Goggles Tim Don Signature

Pro-level comfort and vision. These Tim Don special edition goggles have anti-fog and UVA protection. Super-soft foam on the eye-pieces and an adjustable band mean they'll feel great even on long-distance swims.

 

 


Zone3 RX3 Medical Grade Compression Tights

Zone3's RX3 (Race.Recover.Repeat) range of medical grade compression combines comfort and efficiency to deliver performance at the highest levels. 

The winner will receive either the Zone3 RX3 Medical Grade Compression Tights or the Zone3 Women's RX3 Medical Grade Compression Tights (you'll have the chance to specify preference if you win).

 


Zone3 Triathlon Transition Bag

With a capacity of 40L and plenty of compartments, this is the perfect way to carry your tri kit and keep it organised. There's a 100% waterproof section at the bottom so you can keep wet and dry kit separate.

 

 


Zone3 Natural Glide Anti-Chafing Protection Balm (60ml)

This natural and organic balm eliminates chafing and irritation that can occur in hot or wet conditions. It's water resistant which also makes it perfect for helping you to get your wetsuit on.
