To run our events we need marshals. Ask any event organiser and most will say finding enough is an ongoing struggle. So put something back into the sport you love by helping at one of our events. It’s generally a fun morning (or afternoon) and competitors always appreciate support from the team of marshals. And as an extra incentive we’re happy to pay £20 expenses (or give you free entry to a future event) for anyone who helps out for 2-4 hours. Or we’ll pay up to £60 for anyone able to help for the whole day.

And if you’ve already entered but are injured we’ll defer your place FREE if you volunteer to marshal & pay you £20 expenses.

Just call or text us on 07866 567 894 or fill in the form at We’ll add you to our Volunteers list and get in touch a couple of weeks before our next event.

Similarly if your child is 7 but turns 8 in December they are eligible to enter any Tristar Start event. For events on open roads the minimum age is 15. However for our Pool-based triathlons the minimum age is 8 by 31st Dec in the year of competition. (under British Triathlon rules). And at our Donut Duathlon we have a mini duathlon with a bike or scoot followed by a run for children aged 3-7. Here is a summary of all the junior age groups (all ages are on 31st Dec of year of competition). Distances increase as children progress through TriStar. On our registration form just choose Tristar or Novice & you’ll be automatically allocated to the correct category. Tristar Start aged 8 Tristar 1 – aged 9-10 Tristar 2 – aged 11-12 Tristar 3 – aged 13-14 Youth – aged 15-16 Junior – aged 17-19 Novice 1 – aged 8-10 (same distances as Tristar Start) Novice 2 – aged 11-14 (same distances as Tristar 2)
