Fritton Lake NSPCC Triathlon Festival Weekend 2016 East Region Championships

Take part in Norfolk’s favourite weekend of triathlon and 2016 is a special year not only being our 10th Anniversary but we are also supporting the NSPCC.

Across the sunny June weekend there are three different distance races with the option of entering all three or racing as part of a relay team. This weekend of racing is more than just triathlon, it’s a perfect family day out or weekend away too.

We believe every childhood is worth fighting for. That is why we are proud to support the NSPCC with the Fritton Lake Triathlon. Everything that the NSPCC does protects children today, prevents abuse tomorrow and transforms society to make child abuse a thing of the past. The NSPCC receives around 90 per cent of it’s funding from generous supporters. Amazing people like you – that’s why when entering the event you have the option to donate £5, £10 or £25 to the NSPCC. We want to thank you in advance for your support and for joining the fight for every childhood.
