TRI in the Park – beginners encouraged to give triathlon a go!

In partnership with Triathlon Scotland, Glasgow 2018 launched TRI in the Park - the brand new Triathlon event at Strathclyde Country Park on the last day of the inaugural multisport European Championships – Sunday 12 August.

The event wants to introduce people to the sport and encourage anybody and everybody to have a try at Triathlon!

TRI in the Park will be jam-packed with activity for those that have never tried the three Triathlon disciplines – Swimming, Cycling and Running – all together, as well as a host of family-friendly attractions.

New competitive races will be held throughout the day including a mini GO TRI event for adults who are new to Triathlon involving a 300m swim, 5k bike ride and a 1.5k run and a family relay where the child takes part in an open water swim and two adults complete the event with a cycle and run.

Additionally, there will be an Aquathlon which involves swimming and running; a Duathlon which sees participants run, cycle and then run again as well as races aimed at existing young triathletes age 11 to 14, and short distance routes for novices and existing triathlon enthusiasts.

We are now encouraging applications and are grateful for likes and shares on Glasgow 2018.
