Tîm Tri Cymru

Tîm Tri Cymru, the Welsh domestic Age Group racing team returns for 2024 and 2025

Welsh Triathlon is thrilled to announce the continuation and expansion of the Tîm Tri Cymru programme for the 2024 and 2025 season.

Tîm Tri Cymru has returned for 2024 where athletes will be representing Wales at the British Sprint, Standard and Aquathlon Championships.

This age group initiative is designed to identify, nurture, and support the most promising triathletes in Wales, with the aim of enhancing their performance on both national and international stages. Tîm Tri Cymru, Welsh for "Team Tri Wales," represents a commitment to excellence in the sport of triathlon, offering a structured pathway for athletes to achieve their full potential.

Moreover, the Tîm Tri Cymru initiative is about more than just individual achievement; it's about building a supportive and ambitious community of athletes. The programme fosters a team spirit that encourages all members to push their limits, share their experiences, and contribute to the collective success of Welsh triathlon.

Tîm Tri Cymru is more than a team; it's a vision for the future of Welsh triathlon. It represents an investment in the athletes who will carry the flag for Wales on the global stage, embodying the values of dedication, integrity, and sportsmanship. Welsh Triathlon invites the triathlon community to support these athletes as they embark on their journey toward excellence, representing the spirit and talent of Wales in every stroke, pedal, and stride.

Looking ahead, Welsh Triathlon has also detailed the qualification events for the 2025 season, signalling a clear path for aspiring triathletes to become part of this prestigious team. Events such as the Barry Island Aquathlon, Barry Sprint Distance Triathlon, Bluestone Pembrokeshire Coast Standard Triathlon, and the newly added Harlech Duathlon have been selected as the battlegrounds for athletes aiming to secure their spot on Tîm Tri Cymru 2025.
