Honiton Triathlon is back this year - and is now officially affiliated within the British Triathlon Federation (BTF).
The event, which attracted more than 60 people last year, has set its sights on drawing in more than 100 competitors this time around when it’s held on Sunday, July 26.
But before the big date, organisers say they need sponsorship to help make sure the event is as successful as possible.
Co-organiser David Wellington-Seymour said: “The sponsorship contribution will also help towards running the event, which costs £1,800.
“You would be one of the main sponsors along with a Red Homes Estate Agent, Complete Meats, Honiton Sports, Ganesha Wholefoods, B! Health and Fitness, and A Dimond and Co.
“We are also looking for more sponsorship to allow the work to continue upgrading the much needed extension in our local rugby clubhouse.”
A committee has been established to help run the triathlon, with its main focus on getting it recognised within the BTF.
David added: “This would now mean a lot of work to come in line with established tri-events around the country.
“We had to create an event management plan, complete risk assessments, have public liability insurance and create a webpage - this would also open up the door for triathletes from other tri-clubs to take part within an affiliated BTF approved event.”
Anyone who wants to take part in this year’s triathlon, which is being held at Allhallows Playing Field, can sign up by visiting www.honitontriathlon.co.uk
