GO TRI Route Information
GO TRI is the fun way to get started in triathlon. With manageable distances perfect for first timers, the event is set in and around Roundhay Park.
Begin with a 200m swim in Roundhay Park’s Waterloo Lake, before taking on a 10km cycle through local roads. Don’t worry if you’re nervous on a bike, all roads will be free of cars and you can ride at whatever pace suits you. Finish with a picturesque 2.5km run or walk, where you’ll be cheered all the way to the finish line by large crowds of spectators.
Sprint and Standard Distance Route Information
The 2017 sprint and standard distance courses have been designed to maximize your racing and overall event experience and are spread over two sites; Roundhay Park and Leeds city centre. A key change to the route for 2017 is the creation of a single transition in Roundhay Park. This minimizes multiple pre-event check in locations and limits the amount of transport required for age-group athletes, equipment and spectators.
Registration and bike check-in will occur together at Roundhay Park on Saturday 10 June for competitors in both Saturday and Sunday events, where you also have the chance to take part in a swim familiarization session in Waterloo Lake.
The age-group sprint and standard distance courses begin with a swim in the park’s Waterloo Lake, before proceeding on a challenging bike route. Athletes then re-rack their bikes in the park and head on foot to the world famous blue carpet finish in Millennium Square.
A shuttle bus will be in service running from Roundhay Park to the city-centre providing transport for both athletes and spectators between the two locations.
Following an extensive review of the 2016 event this single transition in Roundhay Park is the start of a number of measures put in place to ensure we provide athletes with a world-class event experience in 2017.
