York Triathlon 2021
The York Triathlon returns to York Sport Village for the 7th time after the postponement of 2020. The triathlon starts with a swim in the heated indoor competition pool, which is an absolute dream to swim in, followed by a multi-lapped bike course, and finishes with a flat run - both are on closed roads.
This spectator-friendly venue is perfect for crowds to cheer on competitors, and create a fun and relaxed atmosphere, so, whether participating or supporting, get colleagues, friends and family involved, take on the challenge and join in the fun.
Also, we want to encourage more women to have a go so UK Triathlon has dedicated a section of this event solely to the Pink Wave, a women only pool start and will donate £10 from every Pink Wave entry to Cancer Research UK. Any age, any ability, just get together for the camaraderie and the challenge, whilst raising vital funds for research into beating cancer.
