Decathlon Lochore Aquathlon (including British Triathlon Youth & Junior Super Series)

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

Organiser's Description

Triathlon Scotland are delighted to announce a brand new Aquathlon event at Lochore Meadows Country Park! The event will form part of the 2021 British Triathlon Youth and Junior Super Series, but will also feature open participation races for Adults and TriStars, as well as a GO TRI event tailored especially for beginners to multi-sport.

In line with sportscotland and Scottish Government guidance, and subject to approval, it may be possible to suspend social distancing whilst on the field of play, including the use of mass starts for certain races. This will be confirmed as soon as possible. All event attendees will be required to remain 2m from others at all other times during the event including before and after each race.

Entry to the Youth and Junior Super Series event is by application only (please see information below), and will involve an exciting multi-race, multi-distance format.

Our TriStar event is open to all 9-14 year olds*, who will complete a single open water aquathlon race. 

We are also hosting open participation events for adults (age 15+*). Take part in either a sprint distance (750m swim, 5km run) or our short, beginner-friendly GO TRI (300m swim, 2km run). 

If you would like advice or guidance about getting ready to enter, then please get in touch, and we can guide you to a training session near you.

If you have a disability, you are also welcome!  Please talk to us so that we can help to find the best event for you to enter.
