As part of a wider delivery day, this aquathlon will provide participants with an opportunity to experience multisport in the form of an aquathlon. An aquathlon is a multi-sport variation that will see participants taking part in a swim followed by a run. We will have two waves, one for participants aged 15-17 and another for those who are aged 18 and above.

GO TRI has been uniquely developed to ensure there is something for everyone, no matter your age, experience, or ability. We believe that every single person deserves a GO TRI experience. In making multi-sport activity accessible, the activity will see a 300m swim in the lake at Parc  Bryn Bach followed by a 2.5km run along the path that goes around the lake.

We welcome and encourage everyone to sign up for this activity no matter what their background, previous experience or ability. Don’t worry if the distances seem daunting, if you do find that you feel tired, just turn around and come back. We will also send you an activity information pack the week before with all the information you need to know on the day.

This activity is perfect for anyone looking to have a go at multi-sport activity with the chance to experience open water swimming.
