We provide fun but challenging events for all abilities, from first time competitor to experienced triathletes at a range of venues that include pool swim, lake swim and sea swim courses.
Our aim is to encourage all to the wonderful experience of triathlon and make it fun and rewarding for all our competitors.

Triathlon is now recognised around the world as well as being an established Olympic sport. It is also the fastest growing participation sport in the UK as it accommodates complete novices as well as professionals.
The UK Triathlon Series was established in 1993 with a small event in Nantwich that had a field of 100 competitors, the series has grown to become the largest triathlon race series in the UK today that caters for complete novices, elite athletes and everyone in between. We stage 8 triathlons across the UK as well as a running event; with multiple distances at our events we are accessible to all, regardless of fitness and ability.
