GoTriSeashell 2018

Seashell Trust's triathlon for people with complex disabilities and special needs returns - this year with an added inclusive children's triathlon at the same time!

The two categories of event are the children's triathlon - an inclusive event open to 8-14 year olds of all abilities and disabilities - and the adapted triathlon for competitors aged 15 and up with severe or profound learning, communication and/or sensory impairments. 

Athletes will take part in each event at a distance appropriate to their needs and abilities, although we have provided some guidelines here to help you decide. We understand that many of our participants might experience varying energy levels and ability to participate on different days, and so you will be able to confirm the appropriate distances when you register on the day.

Date & Time

Sunday, 15th July - start time 11am with registration open from 10am

Fields marked with a * are required.

 

About You
The children's triathlon is fully inclusive of all abilities and disabilities for ages 8 - 14. The supported triathlon is aimed at people with complex learning, physical and/or sensory disabilities with a minimum age of 15. All participants are welcome to complete a duathlon (running and cycling only) if they do not wish to swim.
This assistance may include prompts, physical support and personal care as appropriate.
We'll keep a record of the supporter's name so we know to expect them during the event. If they need to get in touch with us for any reason, please let them know that they can reach us at 0161 610 0100 or email maureen.wilkins@seashelltrust.org.uk
e.g. EpiPen, epilepsy rescue medication, inhalers
