Triathlon Training Centre Aquathlon - Race 5

The Triathlon Training Centre are once again putting on a series of 5 Aquathlons, this time in the picturesque county of Berkshire at beautiful Bray Lake.

Welcome to the final race in the TTC Aquathlon Series!

Aquathlons are a swim and run multi-sport event, with each competitor completing a 750m open water swim followed directly by a 5km run. Under the guidance of our race director, 3x Aquathlon World Champion Richard Stannard, we have created a great course suitable for both novice and experience athletes alike. Our goal is to create an inclusive race series for all - if you are new to multi-sport or aquathlon racing, join us for our free Intro To Aquathlon presentation in early May (date TBC) or one of our coaching sessions and let us help you get active!

These swim and run events, held on various Saturday mornings across the season, are an excellent opportunity to monitor your progression throughout the year with each event being held on the identical course allowing for comparisons of times across the series. The Aquathlon Race Series is made up of 5 races - each race has great prizes plus enter multiple races in the series and your best results from your top 3 races go towards the grand final podium and prize giving!

The aquathlon is open to juniors provided they are 15 or older as at 31 December 2018.

On the day registration will take place between 06.30am and 07.40am closing promptly. Race briefing will follow at 07.45am in the transition area. The race will start in the water at approx. 8am.

  • Non-wetsuit swimmers are eligible to participate in the event provided they have experience swimming the event distance without a wetsuit at this time of the year and complete the non-wetsuit section of the entry form
  • Wetsuit rental is available for the evening event for those who require one. If you would like to hire a wetsuit, please email Jas on info@triathlontrainingcentre.com.
