OVERVIEW

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 now offer GO TRI events for kids too.

We’re in Devon so many of the courses are not flat! So we’ve graded the Go Tri courses in our Beginners FAQ

Go Tri Triathlons usually start with a pool swim. Then it’s onto the bike and practically any roadworthy bike will do. You just need a helmet.  You finish with a run. Or if swimming’s not your thing you could try a Go Tri Duathlon (run, bike, run) instead.  At our GO  TRI events you get all the features of a full distance event including chip timing and results on the day. We also offer two GO TRI duathlons which are a run followed by a bike and then another run and are perfect for people who want to try their hand at multisport events without a swim.


HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE & WHAT ABOUT EXPENSIVE 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 anywone who prefers to do a shorter event. For our duathlons, of course, you just need a bike, a helmet & some running shoes.
