Get set for the Triathlon England Championships


The Triathlon England Championships will take place at events across the country and will see national champions crowned in sprint, standard, middle and team relay triathlon, as well as in duathlon and aquathlon.

Working with local event organisers, Triathlon England coordinate the annual national championships and, following their postponement in 2020, they’re back for 2021.

These six events provide Triathlon England Core and Ultimate members the chance to compete to become national champion in their age group and take home a gold medal to prove it.

The first championship takes place on 18 April as the duathlon championships head to the Yorkshire Duathlon.

Based at the Croft Motor Circuit just south of Darlington, the standard distance race will see participants complete two 5km laps on the circuit before transitioning onto the bike leg which will comprise laps on the circuit and a 23.3km route on public roads. A final 5km run on the circuit will bring participants to the finish line and see national duathlon champions crowned.

Triathlon England Championship events are raced in five-year age categories, with gold, silver and bronze medals awarded to the top three male and female members in each category from under 20 upwards.

The second championships of the year take place in July and is the longest distance to be competed over, the Triathlon England Middle Distance Triathlon Championships.

Hosted at the Festival of Endurance at Hever Castle on 4 July, a 1.9km swim will be followed by a 90km bike leg and 21km run leg which will take in a mix of the castle grounds and local roads and paths, including High Weald of Kent and Ashdown forest on the bike and Chiddingstone village on the run.

The following week sees the standard distance championships head to the Woodhorn Museum Triathlon in Ashington. The event takes place in the grounds of the ancient monument of Woodhorn Museum national archives and QE2 Country Park.

Making the most of its surroundings, the swim will take place in the park’s freshwater lake, with the bike route providing competitors with views out across the North Sea before the run route on paths through the woodland and open grasslands surrounding the lake and onto the finish in the museum.

Taking place on the August bank holiday weekend, the Triathlon England National Club Relay Championships will once again take place at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottinghamshire and be hosted at the HUUB Triathlon Relay Championships.

Teams of four will each take on a 500m swim, 15km bike and 5km run in the lake and around its edge, with every team member completing each discipline one after the other before moving onto the next in what the organisers describe as ‘organised chaos’.

The penultimate championships of the year is the Triathlon England Sprint Distance Triathlon Championships at Box End Triathlon on 4 September, with entrants taking on a 750m swim, 20.1km bike and 5km run in their quest to become national sprint champion in their age group.

A swim in the wakeboarding lake at Box End Lakes is followed by a new bike course for this year with less turns to make it a fast one for participants, who will take on a single lap 5km run to the finish line.

Rounding off the championship year a couple of weeks later is the aquathlon championships at the Worthing Aquathlon on Sunday 19 September. The final championship will set competitors a 750m seas swim followed by a flat, single lap 5km run along the promenade that will take in a palm-lined route and historic pier and lido.

The run will see participants complete their race along the finish chute on the beachfront outside the sailing club which will be the event HQ for the day.
