We take part in all the BUCS events, as well as numerous public duathlons, aquathlons and relay events.
Our tour also always centres itself around a race that is achievable for the whole club. We are always keen to have new events added to the calendar so if there's an event you would really like to do, and you think the team would enjoy it too, please speak to one of our committee members.


We host two triathlon events a year: Try-a-Tri and our Spring Super Sprint!
Both are beginner friendly super sprint triathlons, aimed at those wanting to get into racing multisport events. The race includes a 200m pool swim, a 9k bike on a traffic free circuit, and a 1.6k or 3k run on quiet pavements.
Try-a-Tri- is an event open to the public, and our Spring Super Sprint is an inter-university event, so a great opportunity to meet fellow triathletes from around the UK!


Just in case 9 training sessions wasn't enough time with your triathlon buddies, we have plenty of socials too!
Although triathletes aren't known for their drinking abilities, it is extremely important to stay hydrated.
We have fortnightly socials - destination the SU (or the pub for any who prefer a more sophisticated night), sometimes joining the Athletics and Cycling clubs.
We also do plenty of non-alcoholic socials, such as parkrun and pancakes every month, trips out and post-race meals!
