Standard (Sunday)


We call this the original triathlon. It’s what the pro’s do when they compete at the Olympics as well as the race distance for Sunday’s ITU World Triathlon Series event. This is your chance to race like the stars in the very heart of Leeds.

Why we LOVE the Standard Distance

The standard distance event in 2018 also plays host to the British Standard Distance Triathlon Championships, meaning the best of British age-group talent will be competing to be the first to cross the iconic blue carpet finish in Millennium Square. The British Triathlon Championship Events do attract more experienced triathletes, but don’t worry though, if you’re a first timer or new to the sport, regardless of whether you enter the Sprint or Standard distance events, the open races are set to be a fun and accessible event for all abilities. Rest assured that there will be plenty of other triathletes of a similar ability to you taking part.

Date, Time & Location:

Sunday 10th June, Roundhay Park - Leeds City Centre

Who can take part?

You must be 17 or over to take part (on the 31st Dec 2018)

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 get advice on hiring both a wetsuit and a bike from the event organisers if you need to.
