How it works
The two categories of event are the children's triathlon - an inclusive event open to 8-14 year olds of all abilities and disabilities - and the adapted triathlon for competitors aged 15 and up with severe or profound learning, communication and/or sensory impairments.
A triathlon combines swimming, cycling and running, although all participants are welcome to compete in a duathlon (running and cycling only) if they do not wish to swim for whatever reason. All participants will be able to access our specialist equipment and facilities including a 1.2m deep swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, specialist bikes (including trikes, arm bikes and MotoMed bikes), accessible changing facilities and a Drive Deck - a wheelchair accessible moving platform that users can operate through a joystick or switch in order to control their own movement!
Participants will compete over distances that suit their needs and abilities.
