Tri debut options
Greetings one and all!
I want to make my debut in triathlon this year and I find myself torn between two sprint-distance options, namely Steyning and Arundel in May with Chichester in July pencilled in and underlined as a follow-up.
The question I'd like to ask is which might be a better option for a total newbie? - Steyning is slightly shorter on the cycle and run elements while Arundel is apparently more picturesque and relaxed while both have notional down sides too which is why I'm struggling to make a decision.
Additionally, would it be possible (or advisable) to do both if I really couldn't choose? Or would going from beginner to two events in a month leave me hobbling around like John Wayne with Deep Heat on his nethers for June?
Thanks in advance!
