The City of York Triathlon returns to York Sport Village and the 2018 UK Triathlon Race Calendar for the fifth year running.
This joint initiative with York Sport has inspired entrants of all abilities to take on the challenge of swim, bike and run in and around The University of York & York Sport Village over the last 4 years. With 2 distances to choose from and the option to enter as an individual or relay team of three, the triathlon starts with a swim in the heated indoor pool, follows on with a flat multi-lapped bike course and finishes with a run. This spectator friendly venue is perfect for crowds to cheer on competitors and create a fun & relaxed atmosphere so, whether participating or supporting, get colleagues, friends and family involved and be a part of this exciting new event.

There are prizes in all events for both race position and age group winners, with the exception of the Fun distance, which like it says is purely for fun!
At the York Triathlon our “Fun” and “Sprint” distances are very popular with first timers and beginners, with short achievable distances that still offer a challenge.
Our fun & friendly events are open to everyone and an ideal introduction for beginners to the sport of triathlon. The York Triathlon offers a supportive environment, with cheering crowds and a fun & relaxed atmosphere meaning everyone enjoys the day, competitors and friends & family alike.
We can offer lots of support and online beginners advice to help make your Triathlon the best it could possibly be for you. As well as a great atmosphere, you are sure to gain a special sense of achievement as you cross the finish line to receive that all important “finishers” medal and confirmation the end result was worth every bit of hard work!
