GO TRI Local is ideal for people that are brand new to swimming, biking and running and looking to take their first steps in a safe and enjoyable environment. Think of it as like Parkrun for Swim Bike Run. More experienced competitors are also welcome to take part.
GO TRI Local Torbay is normally on the first Saturday of every month. It’s a fully off-road course that suitable for all ages & abilities. These opportunities are all about having fun and building your confidence. With the opportunities, we have set out the minimum distances for each element of the event. The bike and run elements are lapped, so you can do as much or as little that want on the day. eg more experienced people can do a 150m swim, a 7.5K bike (5 laps of the velopark) and a 2k run which is 3 laps of our run course
Children as young as 6 (provided they can swim 25m) can take part with a responsible adult taking part with them. To book children, please read our FAQs further down this page first.
You start with a pool-based swim, followed by a Velopark ride on smooth, flat tarmac and a flat parkland run. In the event of bad weather, we may change the format to a duathlon or a reverse triathlon.
