TRI in the Park

Taking place on Sunday 12 August, at Strathclyde Country Park, Hamilton, the event has a host of short triathlon (swim-bike-run), duathlon (run-bike-run), aquathlon (swim-run) and aquabike (swim-bike) individual, team and family GO TRI events to choose from!

Children aged 11-14 will also be able to take part in specially created TriStars 2 and TriStars 3 triathlon races on the closed road circuit.

GO TRI events are specially tailored for the complete beginner, and are low cost to enter.  

Our novice and sprint events are slightly longer, and are also suitable for first timers, especially people who have previously taken part in a triathlon training programme or those who have completed a GO TRI aquathlon or duathlon event elsewhere.
