The inaugural Tri-Henley Open Water Triathlon took place in the superb grounds of Shiplake College, on the banks of the River Thames, on Sunday 3 June 2018. Open to junior triathletes aged from seven to 16, and a key event in the South Central Super Series, this proved to be a MUST-ENTER event in the 2018 calendar.


We are very appreciative of the positive feedback we received from parents whose children entered the event.

'an absolutely fantastic event'


i just wanted to email to thank you for putting on such an absolutely fantastic event for our triathlon kids. It's so wonderful that people go to the effort of putting on these events for our kids to enjoy and to see how their hard work training has paid off.

We thought the venue was wonderful and organisation was first class. All the communications were clear and we thought everyone orgnaising on the day did so well. Clearly you had to change plans at the last minute with wet areas but this did not show. What a beautiful day. 

Please, please do it again next you. You were fabulous! 

'superbly organised'


Thanks so much for Sunday - Stuart says it was a great event and superbly organised! Thomas really enjoyed the river....

'cannot praise the team enough'

Thank you so much for such a fantastic event today. Cannot praise the team enough. Well organised and ensured the kids were safe, cool and well hydrated. Well done and thank you.

'so well organised'


Thank you so much for such a fantastic triathlon on Sunday. It was so well organised and such a delight to see the children all having a positive experience. It’s a great addition to south central.

I hope you have some time to reflect and be very proud of what you have achieved.

'a great triathlon'


Hello thank you for a great triathlon today my son really enjoyed it.

'a great experience'


Just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you!

The tri at Shiplake was fabulous. We had such a good time as a family. It was a great experience for my son's first open water swim. Much learning took place and the medal was very much appreciated at the end of the race.


Thanks for putting on such a great event.

'a great day'


We all had a great day at the triathlon as did everyone I spoke to, it all seemed really well organised and it was good to see the results were available without problems.

Thanks again probably see you at the next one in a few weeks.
