This year, Sport Lancaster’s sprint-distance Triathlon event will take place on Sunday 8 September, following huge annual success since 2016. The sprint-distances include 400m swim, 20km bike, and a 5km run.

Following huge annual success since 2016, Sport Lancaster’s sprint-distance Triathlon event will this year be hosted on Sunday 8 September.

Taking place on Lancaster University’s Bailrigg Campus, the Triathlon can be completed as a whole by individuals, or within teams whereby each member completes their chosen, preferred sport.

The team aspect makes the event suitable for beginners tempted to Try-a-Tri, alongside seasoned triathletes taking on the whole challenge.

The sprint-distance sports included in the Triathlon are;

  • 400m Swim
  • 20km Bike
  • 5km Run

Raising money for local charities

All proceeds raised from this event will go to St John’s Hospice & Cancer Care. Over the years, the Triathlon has raised over £31,000 for these charities combined. Participants’ individual fundraising for one or both of these charities is encouraged, and, sponsorship from friends and family also acts as a great incentive to complete the challenge!
