ABOUT THE EVENT
Our Try-a-Tri event is tailor-made for beginners, especially first-timers. With manageable "Swim-Bike-Run-MINI" distances and the combination of a heated-pool swim and fairly flat bike and run courses, the Sri Chinmoy Try-a-Tri is a great way to get a taste of the UK's fastest growing endurance sport.

Our Try-a-Tri event is tailor-made for beginners, especially first-timers. With manageable "Swim-Bike-Run-Mini" distances and the combination of a heated-pool swim and fairly flat bike and run courses, the Sri Chinmoy Try-a-Tri is a great way to get a taste of the UK's fastest growing endurance sport. First timers can take the plunge into Triathlon in a friendly, low-key & low-cost event where you can use pretty much any bike (from a triathlon/TT bike to a hybrid or mountain bike) and benefit from regular guidance as you prepare for the race (we send you frequent & regular emails with Q&A on training, equipment, transition & triathlon rules, so you know exactly what to expect on race day).

For 2024 the Try-a-Tri is part of our award-winning Swim-Bike-Run series in partnership with British Triathlon, at Tockington Manor School just north of Bristol. As well as having a wonderful 25m heated pool, Tockington Manor gives us access to a scenic bike route on mostly flat roads (many of which are designated cycle routes) and an easy run on the school sports field. SBR-Mini events are limited to around 50-80 entrants and have a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for first-timers, so if you want to try a tri for the first time, this event is for you. Think of it is as "like a park run but with swimming and cycling too" and that gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Course Details

Swim - 200m - 8 lengths of Tockington Manor's lovely 25m indoor, heated pool. With only 4 in each lane at a time there is going to be plenty of space to swim at your own pace and we'll match people up in lanes with swimmers of similar speed to avoid too much overtaking. You can swim any frontal stroke - freestyle and breast-stroke are fine, but not backstroke. Nobody will judge your swim style, you just need to be able to complete the 8 lengths of 25m.

Bike - 10k - A varied route on minor roads without any climbs! Any type of bike, provided it's safe and roadworthy, can be used. Our course is 2 loops of 5km, with a total ascent of less than 50m across the whole course - that's pretty flat!

Run - 3k - An easy course, 4 laps of Tockington Manor sports pitches. It's pretty flat and you can't get lost.

What's Included

Entry fee includes everything except the tee shirt - an amazing price for a full triathlon. Tees cost extra and can be ordered in advance of the race for an extra fee. Once you enter online you'll get email confirmation and also - for anyone checking the box to state they are a first-time triathlete - a series of tips articles to help you prepare. It's a small and friendly event aimed at welcoming newcomers into the sport.

  • Ideal for first time triathletes!
  • Beginners tips sent monthly to your inbox to help you prepare

youth entrants

Youth entrants (anyone who will be aged 15+ at the end of the year in which the race takes place) are welcome, but the course is not suitable for younger triathletes (who are not permitted to compete on public roads). We regret that the course is not suitable for para-tri competitors due to pool access and run course constraints.
