Go Triathlon & Duathlon

Go Tri Triathlon … Go Tri It Yourself:
In aid of charity for the Volunteer  Zambia Project

After the success of last year, Loughborough University is once again holding its Go Tri Triathlon on campus, and everyone is welcome to take part! This year, along with a triathlon, we’ve also decided to launch a Duathlon for those who don’t fancy a swim in the pool. You can still be a part of Go Tri and engage yourself in a fun run-bike-run event! Go Tri is a fun and inclusive way for everyone to access Triathlon for the first time, with manageable distances which have been purpose-designed for beginners.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  1. Do I need a swimming hat?
    There is no need for a swimming hat, you will however need to have a bike helmet to participate.
  2. Do I just wear a normal swimming costume?
    Yes a normal swimming costume is fine. This is a Go Tri event, which is designed for novices, so do not worry about professional equipment etc. 
  3. When going through transition from swim to bike, is it just a case of putting your cycling gear over your swim suit and off you go?
    Yes, you can put your bike/run gear next to your bike (marshals will be present around the area) and then wear it over swim gear.
  4. Do I have to provide my own bike?
    Yes, unfortunately we are unable to offer a bike rental service. Your own bikes however, do not need to be top of the range, any type of bike will be sufficient to complete the course.
