The Ripon Triathlon takes place at the Ripon Race Course in North Yorkshire this July.

This year the triathlon will incorporate the Triathlon England Standard Distance Triathlon National Championships and is also a qualification race for GB Age Group selection for the World Championships.

However, Ripon Triathlon is still open to non BTF members and we welcome athletes of all abilities who want to experience the very best of Triathlon in Yorkshire.

For those looking for a shorter race we have this year introduced a brand new Sprint Distance Triathlon  that will take place on Sunday morning. On Sunday afternoon we bring you the ever popular Ripon Junior Triathlon with separate races for youngsters aged 8 or above.


Registration for the Standard Distance Triathlon will open on Friday 30th June, evening from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Registration will then reopen on Saturday morning at 10:00am.



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!

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, after lots of research and test runs we’ve come up with the very best bike route for everyone involved and also everyone concerned with the race. A little sting at the start (Hutton Bank) to get your legs going followed by lots reasonably flat and fast road, much of which is on the new service road alongside the A1.


The run is a mix of road, footpath and canal paths through North Yorkshire, making it an interesting route for the final leg of the course. There are one way road closures in place on the run sections of the route and again the route is fully marshalled with plenty of drinks stations on route. Anyone that has competed before will know and love the support of the residents of Littlethorpe along the route, a great motivator to keep going!


All athletes aged 17 and above (age as at 31st Dec 2017). BTF and non BTF members welcome. All abilities.


  • Plenty of off road parking available at the racecourse (200m from car park to Registration)
  • On site camping available from Friday until Sunday (must be booked in advance)
