From the organiser

This is a family, pool-based triathlon with a rural bike around surrounding villages and a traffic-free run. A great intro for novices or a chance for more experienced athletes to lay down a marker!

This particularly spectator-friendly triathlon has the swim section at Bicester and Ploughley Leisure Centre with ample spectator viewing and the run section completely enclosed in Bicester Community College sports ground. The 20km bike route leaves transition at the sports field for a 2 lap circuit of Bicester and surrounding villages including Bucknell and Middleton Stoney.

    Hi this is my son's first triathlon they are competing in the 9-10 event.Please can you let me know if regular swim shorts and t-shirt for bike and run will suffice. Also do we bring our own bikes? Many thanks

    Hi there. There are no specific kit requirements, regular swim shorts and t-shirt should be fine for the 9-10years distance, and please bring your own bike. Hope you enjoy the first triathlon!
