Celebrating 40 Years of Triathlon in the UK
Age 18 & over on 31 Dec 2023
Get involved in this, 2023 for an historic milestone as we celebrate 40 years since the first ever British Triathlon Championships at our iconic race venue. The Reading Triathlon & Aquathlon was the birthplace of triathlon in the UK, held at the Kirtons Farm Water Sports Centre in 1983. Tri2O Triathlon Club proudly presents the Reading Triathlon, a race organised by triathletes for triathletes. This year, we’re excited to offer six thrilling race options, including a special one-off route recreating the 1983 British Triathlon Short Course Championships. We’re also making exciting changes to the course, including a revised run route. Experience the exhilaration of an open water swim in the beautiful Tri2O lake, followed by a picturesque cycle course through the local lanes of Burghfield, Mortimer, and Grazeley, before finishing with a newly-routed off-road run, taking in the Kennet & Avon Canal, local trails and fields.
This event is part of Reading Triathlon.
