The Family Fun Triathlon is perfect for those wanting to give their kids to complete their first triathlon with a parent right alongside. This non competitive event takes place at the end of the event and gives freedom on the course to swim, ride and run at your own pace.

This event operates slightly differently to a traditional fixed distance event, after an initial fixed 100m swim you will be afforded time on the 1.5km bike and 600m run course to complete as much distance as you or you child wants.

THE SWIM

The swim hugs the bank of the lake over 100m so that the shallows are always within easy reach, exiting the water straight into transition.

Here you’ll get ready and head out on the bike riding up and down the lakeside closed roads.

THE BIKE

You will have free reign over the bike course until 30 minutes after the event starts.

THE RUN

You will have free reign over the run course until 45 minutes after the event starts.

All ages as per 31st December 2022, from 15 you may choose to participate in either youth or the normal Sprint, Super Sprint events.
