Tranent Sprint Triathlon 2018

29 Apr 18

Welcome to the Tranent Sprint Triathlon 2018!


RESCHEDULED TO - Sunday 29th April 2018


Hosted by Edinburgh University Triathlon Club, this is a well established annual race and is a favourite of many triathletes. The race is open to everyone: with the pool-based swim and good facilities available it is an ideal event for beginners; whilst the fast course makes it the perfect start-of-season event for experienced triathletes.


The race takes place in Tranent, East Lothian. The route is the one used at last years event, 2017. The 750m pool-based swim is followed by approximately 20km bike around the East Lothian countryside. The 5km run takes place in the town of Tranent and follows a two-lap format. The bike and run routes will be well signposted with assistance provided by voluntary marshals. After the race food and drink will be provided.

The race routes are:

Bike Route (see note below)

Run Route (2 laps)


Scottish University students and EUtri alumini should enter their current/old matriculation number in the Student Number field. This is to give you a £5 student discount. Students are required to bring valid student ID to the race, if you do not then you will have to pay the full race amount. 

BTF members will also recieve a £5 discount by entering a valid membership number and bringing their race licence to registration on the day.




Note about the bike route

On the bike route there is a traffic light controlled four way junction where the B6414 joins the A6124. This follows a steep descent and will be well signed and marshalled. Last year we successfully implemented a system where cyclists mounted the pavement at the junction, meaning they didn't need to stop for the traffic lights - this system will be used again however if any competitor remains on the main road jumps a red light, it will result in an instant disqualification from the race. This will be explained in the race briefing so everyone is aware of the junction!
