Juniors

The Junior Aquathlon is open to competitors aged from 8 to 16 inclusive - based on competitor's age at end of this year.  The race distances are as follows:

Age Group Category Swim Run
8 TriStar Start 50m 0.6km
9-10 TriStar 1 150m 1.5km
11-12 TriStar 2 250m 2km
13-14 TriStar 3 400m 3km

Triathlon age groups are based on age at end of the year. e.g. If you're 11th birthday is coming up this Winter then you'll race in the 11-12 age group, even though you'll only be 10 on the day of the race. This ensures that you race against the same people all year.

Please note: we are unable to make any alterations to the swim lanes / swim times once the event has closed or on the day of the event - so please do ensure you give an accurate estimate.

For the juniors, the race continues to form part of the Triathlon Scotland Tristars and Youth Aquathlon Series.  Many of the current performance programme athletes started out competing in aquathlons, but it is also a great opportunity to meet and make new friends.
