TRI in the Park

TRI in the Park

The Glasgow 2018 European Championships, in partnership with Triathlon Scotland, have launched a brand new Triathlon festival* at Strathclyde Park to introduce people to the sport - TRI in the Park.

Taking place on Sunday 12 August, at Strathclyde Country Park, Hamilton, the event has a host of short triathlon (swim-bike-run), duathlon (run-bike-run), aquathlon (swim-run) and aquabike (swim-bike) individual, team and family GO TRI events to choose from!

Children aged 11-14 will also be able to take part in specially created TriStars 2 and TriStars 3 triathlon races on the closed road circuit.

GO TRI events are specially tailored for the complete beginner, and are low cost to enter. 

Our novice and sprint events are slightly longer, and are also suitable for first timers, especially people who have previously taken part in a triathlon training programme or those who have completed a GO TRI aquathlon or duathlon event elsewhere. You can also enter the sprint event as a two-person or three-person team.

Please note: Wetsuits are mandatory for the swim legs, helmets are mandatory for the bike leg.

If you would like to take part but do not have all the essential equipment, please contact  , and we will do our best to offer help and advice where possible.
