What is Triathlon?

Triathlon is a multi-discipline event where people compete against the clock and each other. Swimming, cycling and running with no break except for the transition (this is a quick pit stop to change for the next discipline).


The event is aimed at beginners and we expect most of the field will be taking on their first triathlon. All you need is a swimming costume or trunks, goggles (not compulsory), a bike (road or mountain bike as long as it is in roadworthy condition),a cycle helmet (compulsory) and a pair of trainers.
So go on give it a tri? You will be given full instructions before the event and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch, by email or social media.

 

The individual triathlon
This is open to anyone over the age of 15 (on 31/12/20). You must complete all three disciplines with no outside assistance. Your time will be taken from when you start the swim to when you finish the run.

The swim - 400m / 200m
To start the event you need to swim either 8 or 16 lengths of the heated swimming pool (any stroke is fine) and then you make your way to the transition area and prepare for the bike ride.

 

The bike - 1 lap 12K / 2 laps 20K
After completing the swim you will then jump on your bike around the local countryside. 
 

Run - 1 lap 2.5K / 2 laps 5K
Once the bike has been completed you then return to transition for the run, this is 2.5K or 5K around the surrounding paths.
