The 2018 Media Industry Triathlon, in support of Media Trust, is back!

This year’s event will take place over the weekend of the 22 and the 23 September, during the Hever Castle Triathlon in Kent. Media Trust, in association with Dentsu Aegis Network, is hosting two dedicated waves for media industry professionals, offering a choice of two race distances: the Saturday Super Sprint or the Sunday Olympic. 


Set in the stunning grounds of Hever Castle in Kent, the Media Industry Triathlon encourages media and advertising professionals to come together, challenge themselves and compete against friends, clients and colleagues from across the industry.

Whether you are a first-timer or a seasoned triathlete, this event offers a memorable sporting experience for everyone.
