Organiser's Description

We are excited to invite you to join us in the historic seaside town of St Andrews for our annual Spring Triathlon! This year sees our novice event return, running alongside the sprint distance event as a friendly race aimed at those wanting a taste of their first triathlon. Races are open to all, from complete beginners up to seasoned triathletes.

 

St Andrews Sprint Triathlon 2024

The sprint distance triathlon consists of a Swim/Cycle/Run format over a distance of 750m/26km/5km.

Relay teams of 2 or 3 are welcome and can enter at the same price. Please put your name under one person and tick if you are entering as a team on the questionnaire. Please make sure only ONE team member participates per leg of the race. To specify, this means only ONE person needs to pay and sign up, giving the names of the other participants. You will still need your teammates' information, such as their British Triathlon numbers.

This race is open to all aged 15 and over with racers under 18 needing explicit parental consent that can be emailed to us at: triathlon@st-andrews.ac.uk . This is a non drafting race.
