This event has been postponed from Friday 8th May to Monday 31st August 2020.


Set in the centre of Winchester the May Day Triathlon is back for 2020! This triathlon is the perfect introduction for people who have always wanted to try a tri!

We have a limited number of charity places and would love to welcome you to Team Wessex! 

You'll swim in an indoor pool with only 4 people per lane. You'll get to swim with people of similar ability. 

You'll then take to a bike and cycle out of the historic medieval city into the wilds of Hampshire, for a quiet and rolling ride, taking in the lovely small village of Sparsholt on the way. 

The run is slightly hilly with one long drag down out of the school and back up again. It's a combination of running on footpaths and around the flat school playing fields. There'll be lots of opportunities for your spectators to cheer you on!

There are three options of distances to choose from:

Novice Triathlon – 200m Swim, 11km Bike and 2.5km Run

Sprint Triathlon – 400m Swim, 22km Bike and 5km Run

Children’s Triathlon – 100m Swim, 2km Bike and 1km Run
