Pool Based Sprint – Southwell, Sunday 15th April 2018
400m swim, 17.6km bike, 5km run
One of the earliest races of the season, a chance for more experienced members to test out their Winter training and for those new to the sport, a pool based swim is great for your first race. In fact a third of entrants are novices, so you won’t be alone!
Standard Distance – Ripon, Saturday 30th June 2018
Open Water Sprint – Ripon, Sunday 1st July 2018
1500m swim, 40km bike, 10km run – standard distance
750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run – open water sprint
A double header weekend! With a great atmosphere, this has always proven a popular event with members in the past. An afternoon start for the standard distance on the Saturday gives the chance to camp the night and support the STC members racing the sprint the following day (or even double up). There’s even a Junior event on the Sunday as well. Should be a cracking weekend.
Triathlon Relays – National Watersports Centre, date TBC
Triathlon Relays (2017 event)
relay x 4: 500m swim, 15km bike, 5km run
A fantastically bonkers event where each team of 4 completes a 500m open water swim (after a tag handover between team mates), a 15km bike ride and 5km run. Exact details are still to be finalised for 2018 but we aim to encourage as many teams as possible to take part in this one-of-a-kind event. Why it is bonkers? Well, try spotting a team mate to tag that’s wearing a wetsuit, amongst 100 other people, all wearing wetsuits.
Middle Distance – Sundowner, Saturday 1st September 2018
1900m swim, 90km bike, 21km run
We love this race! A midday Saturday start, a welcome change from the often 4-5am alarm at most races! Camping on site makes this a very relaxed environment, and entry includes a Yorkshire meal, live music and fully licensed bar after the race….what more could you want?! It’s quite a flat and fast course too, for those chasing a PB.
