ABOUT TRIATHLON

Triathlon is the fastest growing sport in the UK.  It's fun and challenging and enjoyed by a wide range of people.  It consists of a swim, on to a bike ride and into a run.  For juniors (up to 15), these are done mainly in swimming pools and then off road for bike/run.  The distances are based on your age on the 31st December of each year
