Perth Relay Wild Triathlon

11 Aug 2019

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the Relay Wild Triathlon / Fun Run, an ITU relay format triathlon race, organised by Perth Triathlon Club.  The race is returning for a seventh year because we love organising this race! 

Race date: Sunday 11 August.

We have space for 50 teams of 4 people, so a limit of 200 participants.  This is a very popular event and has sold out each year so be quick!

Each person in the team will in turn complete a short triathlon course, and then tag their next team member until all four have completed the course.  The distances are 200m pool swim, 5.8km on road cycle and 1.2km run in the grounds of Kilgraston.  Each person will swim-bike-run before the next person starts and so is a great event for spectating.

Team categories are 4 x male / 4 x female / 2 x male + 2 x female (must run in order female-male-female-male).  No other combinations are eligible to enter so please make sure you enter names correctly.  

Prizes will be awarded to the overall winners of each of our three categories.  Other prizes may include first local team, fastest swim / bike / run splits and for the team 'A member' (e.g. the first swimmer), a prize for the most accurate predicted swim time versus actual swim time.

Entrants must be aged 17 on 31st December 2019.  You will sign up to our event as a team, but will not be required to give us at sign up, all of your team member names, because we know that team members change often before race day.

We will email team leaders, 3 weeks before race day to request your final team names.  You will have 1 week to send this information to us.  After that, no team changes are permitted.

Anyone who is under 18 years old will need parental written permission to take part and must sign at registration

So that the event is family friendly, we will also have a free kids fun run before the main event - you can register children for the fun run on Entry Central too.  The run will be around the triathlon run course, and children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite wild animal.  Children can be accompanied by a parent, and everyone will receive a wee sweetie for their efforts, even the adults!

At the school, the grounds are fantastic and there is a small adventure play area next to the finish line. The race is chip timed by Thistle Timing. 

We anticipate the schedule to be as follows, this is subject to change to later in the day.

10.00am registration opens
11.00am kids fun run starts
11.30am registration closes for triathlon race briefing
12.00pm triathlon race start

Please keep an eye on www.perthtriclub.com for up to date schedule information and the race route.   Normal British Triathlon rules apply and there will be a technical official present on race day.


Teams which include someone who is a member of triathlonscotland are £88 (£22 each) and teams who do not have someone who is a member of Triathlon Scotland are £93 (£22 each with a £5 non-member additional charge).  We try to keep the entry fee as low as possible and so this is a 'no-frills' event. 

IMPORTANT - if one of your relay team is a member of Triathlon Scotland, please get them to sign up for the event as the team leader, so that your entry discount can be applied.  


Clubs are encouraged to get involved and enter as many teams as you like until we are full.  We also invite people who are new to triathlon to give this race a go because the distances are very short. Please tell your friends!
