Triathlon Relay Championships

Saturday 25th August 2018

National Watersports Centre, Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham

The Triathlon Relay Championships (formerly "National Club Triathlon Relays") are held every year near Nottingham at the National Watersports Centre. The race has a unique format with teams of four taking it in turns to complete each leg. When all 4 have completed the 500m swim, they then move to a 15k bike and finish with a 5k run.

National tri relays 2006You can see the whole swim, most of the bike and much of the run from the stands and there's a real party atmosphere with all the cheering teams. On the Saturday 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. You don't have to be a member of the BTF to be part of the Serpentine team but only BTF members are eligible for national titles.

The race has a later start than usual for triathlon: 9.00am for the morning race and 1.45pm for the afternoon race and although possible to travel from London that morning, cheap and easy accommodation is available at the centre's campsite which works out as a focal point for triathletes across the country at the after race party. Further information can be found on the One Step Beyond website.
