The Ripon Sprint Triathlon is open to the youth category as well as both BTF and non BTF members, we welcome athletes of all abilities who want to experience the very best of Triathlon in Yorkshire. On Sunday afternoon we will also bring you the ever popular Ripon Junior Triathlon with separate races for youngsters aged 8 or above, making it a great day or full weekend for the whole family.

REGISTRATION

Registration for the Sprint Distance and Junior Triathlon will open on Sunday at 7:00am and will remain open until midday 

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE COURSE

SWIM

The swim section of the course is a single lap open water swim in the lake. There will be multi-wave starts so you will be asked your swim time upon signing up so that the event is as fair as possible for all competitors. Ripon Race Course lake provides a warm, clean and perfect depth swimming environment for a Triathlon. Generally we recommend wetsuits but it has been known to reach high temperatures in which case we will advise you prior to the event. Make sure you are equipped for all conditions!

BIKE

The cycle section of the course is fully marshalled making it easy to find your way. It is an out and back road ride. 2016 saw a new bike route for the Standard distance, the Sprint distance uses a shorter variation of this route. A little sting early on in the bike route (Hutton Bank) to get your legs going followed by lots reasonably flat and fast road.

RUN

The run is a mix of grass, footpath and canal paths on a traffic free route through North Yorkshire, making it an interesting route for the final leg of the course. The route is fully marshalled with drinks stations on route.
