What is Norwich Junior Triathlon?

It is a starter event for young people interest in the sport, or just wanting to try something a bit different. You do not need to have any specialist equipment to take part (see our guide here) so why not come and give it a go?

The event is affiliated to Triathlon England and operates to Triathlon England rules so if you are more serious about the sport it is a great step up to the Norwich Triathlon which is run every year by Tri-Anglia.

Competitors of all ages swim in Hewett’s swimming pool then cycle around part of the school field before running a number of laps of the Hewett school grass track. The distances for each age group are:
