Get Involved In ParaTriathlon

Paratriathlon is swim, bike, run, however the opportunity to get involved is for anyone with a classifiable impairment, regardless of experience or background in those disciplines or sport in general.

Understanding Paratriathlon

Paratriathlon is three sports in one where athletes compete over the “sprint” distance, which consists of:

  • 750m Swim
  • 20km Bike
  • 5km Run/Push

There are also super sprint (shorter distances), duathlon (run, bike, run), aquathlon (swim, run) and aquabike (swim, bike) events for people to take part in.


Talent Transfer provides the opportunity for athletes already engaged in a performance programme to explore a different sport.

If you're interested in looking at moving to paratriathlon, whether from swimming, cycling, running or a completely different sport, please get in touch.

Classification System

To progress within the Paratriathlon Pathway, athletes are required to gain a classification. This is essential to compete at a national level on the British Triathlon Paratri Super Series or an international level at Europe or World Triathlon events.

Classifications help to create an equal playing field by ensuring athletes only race against people with similarly impactful physical impairments across swim, bike, run/push.

A classification is not required to attend a Talent ID day or to take part in the non-classified section of the British Triathlon Paratri Super Series. Find out more about classification here
