The very first triathlon event to take place in the UK was held at the Kirtons Farm Water Sports Centre back in 1983. The venue has now become the Tri2O Swim Centre, based adjacent to the Reading Lake Hotel.
The Reading Triathlon has been run and organised by the experienced events team at My Sporting Times (who also run the Tri2O Swim Centre) since its inception many years ago. Due to diversification of their business, and their close links with the Tri2O Triathlon Club (which was founded at the Swim Centre by a small group of keen triathletes), MST handed over the organisation of the event to the club. We have continued to work closely in partnership with the MST Team to ensure continuity, benefit from their expertise and experience, whilst also bringing fresh ideas to make the event the best local triathlon ever.
