Whether you're using triathlon to improve your fitness, entering your first competitive triathlon or are an experienced athlete looking to compete at a higher level, we'll support you to achieve your goals.


Royal Navy Triathlon

Triathlon athletes compete in three disciplines: swim, cycle and run, in either a Sprint, Standard, Middle or Long Distance event. Sprint races comprise a 750m swim, a 20km cycle and a 5km run; Standards, a 1.5km swim, 40km cycle and 10km run; Middle distance/Half-Ironman a 1.9km swim, 90km cycle and 21km run and Long Distance/Ironman which sees a 3.9km swim, a 180km cycle and a 42km run contested.

We have a number of Level 1, 2 and 3 coaches running regular training sessions in various locations through the year, as well as annual overseas warm weather training camps. We also compete in the Royal Navy Championship and Inter-Service races held throughout the year and represent the RN at several civilian events.

All you need to get started is a pair of goggles, a bike, a helmet, and some running shoes. And bags of drive!
