Races

Throughout the academic year, the University of Sheffield Triathlon Club participate in a wide variety of races, both locally and nationwide BUCS events. 

Our racing calendar each year looks like this:

  • Give It A Go Aquathlon - end of September/beginning of October

  • Give It A Go Duathlon - beginning of October 

  • BUCS Duathlon - End of November 

  • Birmingham Aquathlon - End of February 

  • Varsity Sprint Triathlon - End of March 

  • BUCS Standard Triathlon - Mid May 

  • Local sprint triathlon - Start of June (popularity dependent)

We encourage as many of our club members to take part in these races as possible, and organise the transport for you and your bikes to and from them. The prices can vary, the Give It A Go events are only £1 for people to enter! BUCS Duathlon, Birmingham Aquathlon and Varsity are all normally under £40, and BUCS Standard is more as we have to stay a overnight in a hotel - although the club heavily subsidises most of our races!

This is not all! There are many other local running races, aquathlons, triathlons and more that you can get involved with on your own, and with other members of the club. 

Ones that we promote as a club and are looking forward to taking part in again are:

- Hathersage Aquathlon Series - x4 summer and winter aquathlons

- Leeds Abbey Dash 10k

- Percy Pud 10k 

- Sheffield Half Marathon 

- Local sprint triathlons within 1 hour away in April 

The first events for new members wanting to try out are our club run Give It A Go events - have a look at the Give It A Go page for more information!
