This is the 2nd Darren Hale Triathlon organised in memory of a friend and colleague. It might make you feel exhausted just thinking about it but the triathlons we are offering are only serious and competitive if you want them to be. On the day there is a real buzz with people talking, laughing and joking their way through the triathlon with help and support from each other and the Sport Aston Team.
The Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre, Aston University, Woodcock Street, Birmingham.
All events will take place indoors using the sports centre's gym for the running and bike sections and the swimming pool for the swim part of the triathlon.
Dates: 4th May 2018
The 5th May is Darren's Birthday and seemed a fitting day to host the event as close to that date as possible.
There are 2 distances available and you can chose to do either distance as an individual or if you only want to do one of as a team.
Fun Triathlon (10k Bike - 2.5k Run - 10 length swim) £10
Sprint Triathlon (20k Bike - 5k Run - 16 length swim) £10
Team Fun Triathlon (10k Bike - 2.5k Run - 10 length swim) £15
Team Sprint Triathlon (20k Bike - 5k Run - 16 length swim) £15
If you don't want to do the triathlon but still want to support the fundraising and everyone taking part you can make a donation that will be hugely appreciated by everyone.
When you enter you will chose 3 of the start times and depending on availability we will assign one of those times as your starting time.

In 2017 we held the first ever Darren hale Triathlon in memory of Darren. It was a fantastic day with everyone enjoying the challenge and having fun at the same time.
When we started organising the event last year we were aiming to raise £1500 but thanks to wonderful support from everyone involved we raised a massive £2,297.46.
He was always smiling, cracking a joke or...running, cycling and swimming.
Darren was an exceptional athlete who mainly competed in long distance running but recently found a love for triathlons.
Darren will always be missed and this triathlon is one way we can celebrate his life and one of his passions.
