Don't miss the Strength of Spirit Games, The Rehabilitation Triathlon, hosted by the Royal Navy

The Rehabilitation Triathlon, hosted by the Royal Navy, sponsored by AECOM and The Royal Marines Charity, is a Tri-Service adaptive event for Service Personnel on recovery duties and Veterans.

​The Triathlon, which takes place on Thursday 27 June 2024, will start with a swim in the art-deco Tinside Lido. The cycle will take cyclists on time trials across the Hoe and along Hoe Road and Citadel Road then returning back onto the Hoe promenade via Osborne Place. This is a slightly different route to 2022. Athletes will then move onto static rowing machines, before crossing the finishing line.​

​It is expected that 200 participants from the UK Tri-services and veterans will attend this event, along with International teams from the United States Marine Corps' and Royal Netherlands Marine Corps'.
