Xtra Mile Events has announced that its calendar of triathlon events during 2017 will support This Girl Can Triathlon, as endorsed by British Triathlon.
The Cheshire-based company, which organises high profile triathlons, duathlons and running events across the North West of England and Wales, will stage a women-only This Girl Can wave at each of their triathlon events this year. This includes popular events such as the Wilmslow Triathlon, the Llandudno Sea Triathlon in North Wales, the Macmillan Leeds Triathlon and the South Manchester Triathlon, where it is hoped women will feel more empowered to take on a triathlon challenge surrounded by other, like-minded females.
Many of the events include a GO TRI option, which is ideal for complete beginners wanting a low cost, easy pathway into the sport. For example, at the Macmillan Leeds Triathlon on 3rd September 2017, there will be a GO TRI This Girl Can wave, allowing women to experience the thrill of triathlon but over shorter distances.
This Girl Can is a national campaign by Sport England to celebrate women being active, whoever they are and however they do it. Inspiring women and girls across Britain to get involved in sport, with a popular #ThisGirlCan hashtag in use on social media, the campaign has gained the backing of British Triathlon to encourage females of all abilities to get fit and healthy through triathlon.
