The Jenson Button Trust Triathlon Comes to Derby

It seems that 2015 is turning out to be a great year for sports in Derby, with University of Derby’s £10 million state of the art Sports Hall development and the March opening of the Velodrome and Sports Arena at Pride Park. We are excited to hear that Formula One driver, Jenson Button is coming to Derby with the Jenson Button Trust Triathlon.

The triathlon, taking place on Sunday 12 July at Markeaton Park, will be a great chance for both amateur and professional Triathletes to race alongside the 2009 F1 World Champion. All competitors will take part in a Preliminary heat of a 200m lake swim, 10km cycle and a 2.5km run, then the ‘top 50’ finalists will compete for podium as they race in a 400m swim, 20km bike and a 5km run. All others will finish with a wooden spoon final which involves a 200m swim, 10km cycle and 2.5k run.

Now in its 5th year, the Triathlon is a true family event with a post-race party including live music, food, drink and prizes. To take part in the triathlon, preparation is key, whether that’s by training or buying new trainers or a wetsuit. We often forget that protecting our eyes is just as important, that’s where we as a Derby optometrist come in to help.

To prepare for the day, why not join us for a routine eye exam with our optometrists to ensure your eye health is up to date, then gain valuable advice from our dispensing optician on suitable sporting products available. These include a made to order service for Adidas and Nike sunglasses – great for cycling and running, as well as prescription swimming goggles.

If spectating is more your thing, we also stock a large selection of men’s, women’s and children’s frames – from classic to contemporary, including designer brands Calvin Klein, Ted Baker, Nicole Farhi, Lacoste, Chloe and many more.
