Since then Paul has set up and organised events at venues all over the Sussex area, from village runs to Triathlons with over 600+ competitors.The races and club he helped set up still run today,

After a time working on other projects Paul has returned to race organising in 2010 (although he was still involved with events up to this time, notably Brighton & Sussex Triathlons).


The resurrection of the Ardingly Triathlon and the Uckfield Children's Triathlon were very successful and has been the springboard for the events in 2012. In 2014 saw Paul and the Team organise sixteen events in the Sussex area.

the Hedgehogtri Team

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the events. You can become part of the regular team by contacting us here.
We pay money toward expenses, feed you, get a free entry into a future event and will be part of a friendly and fun Team.

We can't run the events without you, so if you are a retired triathlete, or perhaps injured and you still want to be involved in triathlon come along and join us. We will show you how it's done, one event or more, we would love to have you along.
