Beginners Triathlon Events
“GO TRI” Beginner events make triathlon and duathlon accessible to all and are the perfect way to try your hand at the sport. They’re local, reasonably priced events with manageable distances and purpose-designed for beginners.
We’ve also listed our other beginner-friendly events below such as running races & gravel rides. We now offer GO TRI events for kids too. Check out our Guide to Junior Triathlon and our Triathlons for Kids page which lists all our child friendly events.
HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE & WHAT ABOUT KIT?
A swimming costume, any road worthy bike, a helmet and a pair of trainers and you are ready to take part. Front crawl or breaststroke, all in one go or stop after every length, it’s your choice. Swimmers are grouped by ability so it’s fun for everyone. Our GO TRI events are aimed at beginners but also open to anyone who prefers to do a shorter event. For our duathlons, of course, you just need a bike, a helmet & some running shoes.
We’re in Devon so many of the courses are not flat! So we’ve graded the Go Tri courses in our Beginners FAQ For more information also see our 10 Tips for Beginner Triathletes and our Top 10 Tips for your first Duathlon
