The Hanningfield Triathlon, organised by Essex & Suffolk Water, returns for its fourth consecutive year in support of WaterAid. 

In water, on bike and on foot, you take on whatever Mother Nature throws at you and you overcome it. Few things you do in life will be quite as exhausting, exhilarating, testing and rewarding as this swim-cycle-run triumvirate of challenges. 

This year join up with your friends to form a relay team or choose to take on the challenge of completing one of the two courses on your own!

From the minute you sign up, we’re on hand to offer you advice and support including:

  • Fundraising pack and resources on request
  • Welcome pack with everything you need to know included
  • One month to go newsletter
  • Materials needed to safely take part on the day e.g. swim hat
  • Support and advice from a dedicated member of staff from WaterAid

Above all, we love hearing from you! If you have a question or just want to chat about your training, get in touch

How to send sponsorship in:

If you've set up a fundraising webpage, the monies donated on-line should be transferred to WaterAid automatically. However, if you've raised money off-line, here is how to get it sent to us: 

It is more efficient and cost effective for us to process sponsorship in batches, which saves funds that can instead be used to help some of the world's poorest people gain access to safe water and sanitation. We therefore ask that you collect as much sponsorship as possible before sending it to: 

Craig Holliday
Essex and Suffolk Water
Sandon Valley House 
Canon Barns Road 
East Hanningfield 
Chelmsford CM3 8BD

Please remember to include the following information when sending in your sponsorship: 

  • Your name 
  • What the sponsorship is for  
  • Sponsor form with names/addresses of the sponsors and whether they would like to apply Gift Aid 

We strongly recommend that you send your sponsorship via recorded delivery so that you can track and hopefully retrieve your envelope if it goes missing. Sponsorship does go missing in the post from time to time, and it's hugely disappointing for both triathletes and the charity, so recorded delivery is always worth the extra effort.
