Newbury Triathlon 23/24

Due to a venue clash we have had to take the regrettable decision to cancel the 2023 triathlon for safety reasons. Those already entered will be transferred to 2024 unless they request a refund and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to a bigger and better event.

We return in 2024 on SEPTEMBER 1st with a bigger and better event in the new outdoor 50m pool, you can enter solo as usual or as a relay.
