Hi, Having played football all my life it has taken its toll on the old knees, but am keen to in a sport with less inpact , can anyone point me in the direction of swim, bike avents. Thanks Jeff
Looking at doing tris as relays might be your best bet.
It's events not avents
That was constructive was it not ? You won't miss spell it again now
Swim/bike or aquabike events seem few and far between but Tri Spirit Events do one and I think the Little Woody organisers have one also. Sadly both events were last week though! But keep an eye on next year I guess.
Relay is an option or do a triathlon before stopping/walking on the run possibly? Might be worth asking the race organiser.
Have been asked this a few times recently (I have dodgy knees from five-a-side too) so maybe there's a gap in market!

I'm sure it featured in 220 mag
Don't take willieverfinish's post personally Mr Godard. Wait till you meet him, then you can properly dislike him!
Love ya ben x
I guess there's not much call for swim bikes, given that organisers can stick a run on end knowing it would attract more people. Few and far between I'm afraid.
The swim and bike is obviously low impact but a 5k run is generally manageable by most people who have had injuries so Sprint format 400m pool/750m open water swim, 20k bike and 5k run might be the one for you. If a run is definitely out of the question you could get a runner on board and enter as a team.
