Border Triathletes Junior Triathlon

17 Sep 2017

Welcome To The Sign-Up Page For The Galashiels Junior Triathlon

The Galashiels Junior Triathlon is organised by the Borders Triathletes Club with support from Durty Events and Live Borders. As well as regulars to triathlon this is an ideal event for newcomers to the sport as the bike and run are held on off road paths not suitable for road bikes. All competitors have the opportunity to come along to coached training sessions prior to the event ensuring everyone is ideally prepared as possible for race day. All in all a great environment for juniors taking part in Triathlon.

When: Sunday 17th September 2017.

Where: Galashiels Swimming Pool, Galashiels, Scottish Borders.

Time: Registration is from 13.00-13.45 with the race starting at 14.00

The swim/bike/run distances and fees are determined by the age of the competitor. The age group the competitor belongs to is determined by the age of the competitor as at the end of December 2017. This mirrors Triathlon Scotland age group rules.

For example on 17th September (race day), the competitor is 12, if the competitor turns 13 by the end of the year this competitor belongs to the 13-14 age group.

Additional Junior Triathlon Coached Training Sessions

New to Triathlon? Interested in learning or topping up your swim / bike / run/ /transition skills? The Borders Triathletes coaches are holding 3 additional training sessions in the weeks leading up to the race. These 1 hour coached training sessions will be held at Galashiels Pool at 6pm on the following dates:-

  • Tuesday 29th August

  • Tuesday 5th September

  • Tuesday 12th September

For the purposes of insurance all non-members attending the training will be required to join the club, this is a one off charge of £6, you can do this by clicking here or you can make payment in cash when you turn up for the 1st day of training. Membership to the Tri club will ensure you get updates on future events and are eligible for any further training. Each junior will also have to pay standard pool entry fee for each swim session, payable at the swimming pool desk.

There is no need to sign up for these training sessions, it is possible to just turn up on the day. However if you are definitely coming along then it would be useful for the club to know in advance so if you could email Katrona Methven, Borders Triathletes Junior Development Officer using email address then that would be helpful.

Borders Triathletes organise 3 Junior events throughout the year, MTB Duathlon at Bowhill (May), Aquathon in Selkirk (July) and a Triathlon in Galashiels (September). All events can be found on Entry Central.
