Torbay Triathlon Spring
Torbay Triathlon (Junior & Senior ) for all ages and all abilities from 5+. This festival of triathlon will feature both junior races and adult races on the Sunday. The totally traffic-free triathlon is the perfect way for anyone to start in the sport, with a pool based swim, followed by a Velopark ride on smooth tarmac and a parkland run. There is also a category for relay teams.
The swim, in the newly refurbished 25m pool is followed by between one and 10 laps on the super-smooth tarmac of the Velopark. The race finishes with a one or two lap run (depending on your category) on a fast and flat parkland course.
NEW FOR 2021! Improved Tristar 2 run course which is now one big (1.9K) lap of the field. Finish line moved round the corner which will run more smoothly as finishers will no longer cross swimmers on their way from the pool.

Make sure you collect your number and timing from registration, no later than 30 minutes prior to the start of your race. We publish Start Lists the week before the event (usually on the Tuesday). Race Manuals are sent out at around the same time.
All our races are professionally chip-timed with RFID chips and offer splits for each component of the race and for T1 and T2. Results are available on the day.
