About Us

The East Riding Triathlon is owned and organised by Piston Legs Events.

Piston Legs Events has been founded by Mike Jones with a view to developing existing and new events in both the sports of Triathlon and Competitive Running.

Mike did his first Triathlon 3 years ago and ironically it was this same course. He feels it very fitting that the first Triathlon to be organised by his company be the very first one he raced in.

Having piled on weight during his mid twenties Mike was looking for a way to get fit again. Having started swimming and then running and cycling it was a natural progression to move into the sport of Triathlon. Since that first race Mike has found the sport to be a great way of not only keeping fit but making great new friends as the sport is very friendly at all levels.

Piston Legs hopes to provide the local area with enjoyable and fulfilling races to take part in and where possible help local charities such as Dove House to raise much needed funds.

If we can achieve this we would like to think that “EVERYONES A WINNER!”
