Originally started in 1991, this very unique team event has become legendary, as much as others have tried to replicate it, the Triathlon Relays is still 'one of a kind'. In 2016 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. 

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.
