The club have been delighted with the response to their popular race with the event sold out.
Many of the south’s top multi-sport racers will be competing, including Southsea’s Neil Collins who continues to gear up for the major triathlon qualification events ahead this summer.
Collins won the opening race of the Portsmouth Duathlon Series this month.
