In 2015 we revamped the whole 'RELAYS' weekend and setting
new standards in how much fun you can have whilst doing a triathlon!

British Triathlon Federation Event of the Year 2007

Originally started in 1991, this weekend has become legendary, as much as others have tried to replicate it, the Triathlon Relays is still very unique. In 2015 over 1600 athletes and 100 different clubs joined in the fun that we call 'organised chaos'.

The 'organised chaos' will continue as previous years, only with a new name 'Triathlon Relays'. Our main focus is still that groups of four people join together to complete a triathlon, with everyone doing a swim, a bike and a run. Now you get a few different options.

Triathlon Relays

As requested, we have changed the format of the weekend, adding in the new 'elite style' tag triathlon and there will also be a return of the team time trial on the Sunday.

The move away from the title 'Club Relays' is simple, we spotted that less than 40% of athletes in our regular individual events were members of clubs... we wanted the weekend to be enjoyed by those athletes that were not members of clubs, but ultimately had three friends and wanted to join in the fun. We have also been working alongside British Triathlon Federation & Triathlon England to simply the rules - they are now very simple.

The Saturday, will continue as previous years, with the standard relay format. Each member of the team individually swimming 500metres, before tagging their team mate, and so on, and so on, until all four people have completed the swim. Moving onto the 15km bike, each athlete individually completes the 15km bike, until the last team member then tags the first team member to start the 5km run section.

In the morning, the men's and women's categories will be racing in various categories for National Championship Awards - junior, senior, vet 40 & vet 50. In the afternoon, the mixed category will give the chance for the men's and women's teams to combine and race for more National Championship Awards.

Triathlon Relays Championships

The whole of the re-vamp will be based on the Sunday events. As requested by many of the clubs, we will be hosting the first elite style triathlon relay which is open to all groups. Each team member will swim 300 metres, bike 5km, run 1.5km before then tagging the next team member & they do the same course, until all four team members have completed the course. To add to the excitement, we will also be hosting all of the transition in front of the grandstand area, along with music DJ's and the crazy commentators, this will be mega exciting racing, whether competing or spectating.

There will be three categories racing for National Championships Awards - men's women's and mixed (2 men & 2 women).

The finishes ten in each category will then go forward to the ultimate team test - triathlon team trial! All four athletes must race together with the time being taken from the fourth athlete crossing the line.
