GO TRI – IT’S FUN, FRIENDLY & TOTALLY AWESOME
On Saturday 9th June, newcomers to the sport can have a go at triathlon in a fun and relaxed environment. If you have been thinking about giving swim, bike, run a go, GO TRI is the event for you. With manageable distances perfect for first timers, the event is contained in and around Roundhay Park.
Begin with a 200m swim in Roundhay Park’s Waterloo Lake, before taking on a 10km cycle in and around the park. 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 around the impressive park, where you’ll be cheered all the way to the finish line by load of your mates.

What is it like to take on the GO TRI?
GO TRI Route
Download the 2017 route below. The team are currently confirming the 2018 route, however it is expected to remain very similar to last year’s route. You loved it, so we are aiming to change as little as possible.
Who can take part?
You must be 15 or over to take part (on the 31st Dec 2018)
GO TRI is open to anybody, and is especially aimed at those new to the sport. It is compulsory to wear a wetsuit, and you will need a road worthy bike though this doesn’t need to be a fancy one! You can hire both a wetsuit and a bike from the event organisers if you need to.
