Challenge your physique in a limit stretching disciplinary fitness trial.

A triathlon is a multiple-stage competition requiring the completion of three consecutive endurance disciplines. Whilst there are numerous variations of the sport, the most common disciplines included in a triathlon are swimming, cycling, and running in instant progression over several distances.

If a triathlon seems too challenging, or you wish to build up to participate in a full triathlon you might prefer to take part in an alternative such as a duathlon which involves only running and cycling and an aquathlon which is made up of swimming and running.

If you fancy having a “tri” – here are a few local events throughout the year. Whether you want to take part or simply observe, these events are a great and fun day out.
