Its summer in the city and what better way to relax, get fit and enjoy the seaside views of Portsmouth than by taking part in Believe and Achieve and the RNLI’s very unique multi-sport event, The RNLI TRI Adventure Race.
Not only will you be able to enjoy the beautiful sights of Eastney and Langstone harbour by kayaking, running and cycling our race route, but you will also be supporting and raising vital funds for the amazing RNLI Lifeboat Charity.
After your adventure has come to an end, you have collected your prizes and mini bottle of Prosecco, the fun continues with our very own summer barbecue, complete with beers and refreshments!
The itinerary for the day is as follows:
The race begins with a 2 mile KAYAK, we will of course supply you with a kayak, a paddle and a flotation aid, courtesy of the Portsmouth Outdoor Centre. We will have 2 man sit on kayaks thanks to the Questars team, plus our own fleet of singles and doubles.
No previous kayak experience is required and safety boats will be present thanks to the RNLI Portsmouth.
You will kayak from the lifeboat station on the fast inward tide to the Portsmouth Water sports centre. Here you will leave the kayak and RUN 6km back along the foreshore back to the lifeboat station.
Then you will jump on your bike and ride the 25km around Langstone Harbour. For 2015 you can choose which way you go. For the bike route we recommend an off road bike or hybrid with a suitable off road tyre.
As you Paddle, Run and Ride around the route there will be a selection of physical and mental challenges with clues and tasks for you to collect.
Once you return to the start/finish, here you can then sit back and relax and enjoy the barbecue and refreshments as part of your race package, friends and family can also purchase food as well.
