This 45 minute fun event is ideal for everybody - from beginners to elite athletes!

Throughout the day, we will guide several waves of 12 applicants through 15 minutes on each piece of apparatus. Every machine will be standardised so that it will be well within your fitness level to accomplish 15 minutes on the cycle, treadmill, and rowing machine. And if you need a breather during each 15 minutes, that’s no problem, because we will be recording your distance only, before you proceed to the next machine. Transition/rest times between the three disciplines will be of a mandatory length in order to record and set up each machine for the next participant. We’ll recognise first and second  in the various categories - Men under 40, over 40, Women under 40, over 40, plus winners of the team event.

Tickets cost £15. To sign up click here or for more information email
