2020/21 Norwich Junior Triathlon

Welcome to this year’s event organised for children and young people aged 8 to 16 by Tri-Anglia Triathlon Club.

Coronavirus Update 4 April 2020

In line with government updates that social distancing is likely to be imposed for a long period of time and with British Triathlon’s latest guidance we have decided to postpone this year’s event until 2021. We had considered rearranging for later in 2020, but have now ruled this out as it carries the risk of further postponement.

Norwich Junior Triathlon will now take place on Sunday 6 June 2021. All competitors have been sent further details by email.

Keep safe and well and see you in 2021.

When?

Due to COVID-19 the 2020 Norwich Junior Triathlon originally planned for Sunday 7th June is postponed until Sunday 6th June 2021.

Registration will be open from 9:30am until 11:00am so please make sure you arrive promptly and are registered and have your bike and kit in the Transition area in plenty of time. Transition closes at 11:00am when the race brief starts.

If your bike and kit is not in Transition by the time this closes at 11:00am you will not be able to compete. Transition will open again at the end of the event (approx 2:00pm) for you to collect your bike and kit.

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:
