Race Fees

Please note that entries are now shut, we look forward to seeing you bright and early on Sunday morning! 

Please note that entrants must be 15 or over as at 31 December 2018 (athletes aged 15 to 18 will require their parents to fill out a consent form at registration).

The Relay

The relay is ideal for first timers looking for an introduction to Triathlon. A team of 3 consists of one swimmer, one cyclist and one runner with each team member handing over their timing chip (the baton) at the end of each leg. This means you only have to tackle one of the three legs to a triathlon.

Although the Relay format is a fantastic introduction to triathlon, there will also be experienced athletes battling it out for the win.  Whether you are taking part for the first time, or a regular athlete looking to participate in this team event our event is sure to be one of the highlights in your 2017 sporting calendar.

Free Entry to Thorpe Park

...and if the Triathlon was not exciting enough for you then why not spend the rest of the day in the Theme Park with your loyal supporters!  Thorpe Park is kindly offering FREE entry to the Park during and after the triathlon for all volunteers, athletes and spectators.

The Swim Zone3


The Zone3 swim is a one lap 750m course which takes place within Fleet Lake. With good visibility in the water, and some great vantage points for spectators, it offers a fantastic opening leg to the triathlon.

If you need to hire a suit make sure that you check out the Zone3 wetsuit hire.

The Bike Yellow Jersey


The bike is a one lap 21km course for the sprint distance race which heads out of the park onto the surrounding local roads. It is virtually pan flat, so expect some fast times!

The Run


The 5km run consists of two laps for the sprint distance race navigating around the lake on a flat, fully tarmaced path. The final section to the finish line takes competitors right through the centre of Thorpe Park.
