  • Standard: This is your Olympic distance triathlon event - 1,500m swim, 40km cycle, 10km run

All events are fully inclusive, whether you are an experienced athlete or a complete novice, everyone is welcome!

Para- Athletes

Para-triathletes will be able to compete for points in a stand alone medal table at the Duathlon and Sprint Triathlon Championships. Athletes of all classifications (PTWC, PTS2-5 and PTVI) will compete in the existing events, with modifications made to the course and transition where necessary. A factor system has been determined and this will be applied to the finishing times of para-athletes to create a open and female para-triathlon podium, with points being awarded to first, second and third placed finishers.

If you have not been classified nationally by British Triathlon, please apply for classification using this link. For more information about classification and para-triathlon, please contact Tom Smith, British Triathlon.
