East Fife Tri Club's Sprint and Novice Triathlon and Sprint Aquabike 2024

The East Fife Tri Club’s Annual Triathlon and Tristars Aquathlon will be held on Sunday 14 April 2024 at Cupar Sports Centre and Duffus Park Community Hub. 

We also welcome back, for the forth year, the Aquabike race - a format growing in popularity, run alongside the sprint race.

Get your racing season off to a great start by entering one of the first Triathlons of the year comprising a pool swim, scenic bike course and mixed terrain run route.  This event is ideal for new triathletes as well as seasoned competitors.

We will once again be hosting the Scottish Student Sport Championships. 

After the success of the children's aquathlon in the previous years, we will be hosting this fun event again which will comprise a pool swim and an entirely off-road run within the confines of Duffus Park. Entries for the Aquathlon can be made here: www.entrycentral.com/EFTJuniorAquathlon

All races will finish in front of the Duffus Park Grandstand. 

For those who are new to triathlon East Fife Tri Club offers coached and uncoached sessions which are guaranteed to get you race ready.   The coaching will be with our team of club coaches and offers great value for money. For more details visit our website www.eastfifetriathlonclub.com
