The aim of this event is to have fun, so whether this is your first triathlon or you are a keen triathlete and want to compete either as an individual or as part of a relay team, this is the one for you. Join Team VICTA and we’ll help get you to the finish line. We’ve got training and fundraising advice to prepare you for the big day, cheering packs for your friends and family, and a dedicated team ready to answer any last minute questions. 

Held in the stunning Emberton Country Park, a 200-acre park on the Great Ouse River in Buckinghamshire, this event has become a regular feature on the sporting calendar and offers race options for all levels of ability.

The Try a Tri Team Relay is open to teams of 3 – the teams can be men only, women only or mixed. Held over the sprint distance this race will see one team member take on each leg of the race, so dig out your keenest swimmers, cyclists and runners to take home glory as the fastest team in the region.

Set amid the grounds of a country park, this spectator friendly race provides cheering points for family and friends around transition and the finish line. Why not get involved and get your fan club setup at the finish line making some noise to cheer everyone home.
