The Event

Here is your opportunity to compete for the 2017 cup and title of National Club Champions and/or best winning age group triathlete.

The Club Championships returns to the calendar on Sunday July 16th at beautiful Sutton Park, the chosen venue for 2017 and will yet again be a friendly battle for top spot!

In the centre of the country and served by excellent road links, Sutton Park gives a perfect setting for a memorable triathlon experience. Delivering a sense of wilderness within an urban environment, visitors to Sutton Park can enjoy the captivating scenery, using an accessible network of paths.

Competitors take part individually for their team or club. It doesn’t matter whether you are a novice or top triathlete, all points earned from competitors go toward their respective club or team accumulated total.

The event focus is on a fun & friendly atmosphere with plenty of team camaraderie as well as the serious challenge of who will win the cup and be crowned 2017 UK Club Champions.
