Triathlon

The BUCS Triathlon programme is for...everyone! Whether you are a regular on the competition circuit, or fancy taking up a new sport at university, these events are for you.

First up is the BUCS Duathlon. Put the wetsuit away and clean up the bike for this great event held in November at Castle Coombe race circuit. A private track, so ideal for elites to get a quick time, and beginners to get involved in a safe and welcoming environment.

You loved the duathlon and want to do more? Then next up is the BUCS Sprint Triathlon Championships on the 3rd May 2015! With a pool based swim, and sprint distances, this is the ideal first triathlon event...swimmer? Cyclist? A bit of an all-rounder and your sports season has finished? Then this event is for you! When you are done racing, sit back, relax, and watch the best student triathletes in the country – actually, correction; sit back, relax, and watch some of THE BEST TRIATHLETES in the country (they just so happen to be BUCS students!) battle it out to be crowned the BUCS Sprint Triathlon Champion.

If these two events are not enough to prove that our triathletes are some of the fittest students around, then the season finale, the BUCS Standard Distance Triathlon Championships, will put it beyond doubt.  With a long hot summer on the beach approaching, sign up for one last challenge by entering the Standard Distance.  The gold medal is sure to be hotly contested, but whether you are in the mix until the end, or participating for the first time, we can promise you a great day out, and guarantee you will have a winning smile when you cross the finish line!

For the elite athletes reading this, you are in luck, Triathlon is also part of the BUCS international programme and is competed at the World University Championships.  The World University Championships are for national representative teams (GB & NI) and are held every two years in various countries across the world.

For more details on the competing at this event please click on the World University Championship link on the sub menu.
