4pm Start

The ADI Super Sprint Triathlon Series is a collection of short, technical and intense races over varied formats mixing the standard swim / bike / run legs up giving a new perspective to racing triathlons… Race distances will follow the 1:3:1 distance format where triathletes will swim 100m, bike 3km and run 1km, irrespective of the race format. Great for working on speed and transitions in a race set up as well as for entry level triathletes looking to get into the sport with the smaller distances.

These races will form part of the SUPER LEAGUE TRIATHLON (SLT) – read more about the Super League Triathlon.
