After much consideration we have decided to postpone Norwich Junior Triathlon once again and it will not be taking place in June as planned. Taking into account the COVID restrictions that will be in place on 6 June and British Triathlon’s guidance for events, we do not believe it is feasable to run the event at this time. There are many reasons for this, but two of our key concerns are social distancing requirements and the need to limit numbers of supporters. Norwich Junior Triathlon prides itself in being a friendly, inclusive event and we don’t believe that we can deliver this on 6 June.
We are looking at the possibility of running an event for you later in the year – possibly in September. This may be a Triathlon or a Duathlon (run – cycle – run) depending on COVID restrictions and venue availability. This may be held at Hewett Academy (as with previous events) or elsewhere in Norwich.
All entries will continue to be carried forward. There are still some entries remaining and we will open entry again once we have a firm date for the event.
In line with ongoing government updates that social distancing is likely to be imposed for a long period of time and with British Triathlon’s guidance, we have decide to postpone this year’s event until 2021. Whilst we had considered the possibility of rearranging for later in 2020, we have now ruled this out as it carries the risk of a further postponement.
Norwich Junior Triathlon will now take place Sunday 6 June 2021. Everyone who has already entered will be automically transferred. There is no need to enter again.
Keep safe and well and see you in 2021.
Entry to this year’s Norwich Junior Triathlon is temporarily suspended while we discuss an alternative date. More information will follow ASAP.
We have had 70 entries for this year’s Junior Triathlon. There are now just 15 TriStar Start (8 years only) places and 55 places for 9 to 16 year olds remaining.
Details of our 2020 event are now available on this website, or if you just want to enter go straight to our 2020 Norwich Junior Triathlon entry page.
We are putting the finishing touches to our 2020 event and will be opening for entry by the end of January.
There will be a few changes to the course this year to make the event more interesting for spectators (in the past runners have disappeared down the hill for half the track). We are also looking to make the cycle ride safer by removing a couple of the more dangerous corners.
We are making improvements for supporting families – we hope to have food available on-site this year and are working on having one or two things for siblings who are not competing… oh and we hope to have the loos unlocked this year!
We look forward to seeing you all on 7th June. Further details will be posted soon.
Next year’s Norwich Junior Triathlon has been booked for Sunday 7th June. Hope to see you then for another exciting day of Junior Triathlon action!
Congratulations to all competitors who took part in 2019 Norwich Junior Triathlon. You can see the full results online.
Thank you to all our volunteer marshals who did an excellent job again this year.
See you next year!
With just over a month to go we have only a few places left now in the Tristar Start (8 years) event and a few in the event for 9-16 year olds. If you want to take part please register soon as places are strictly limited due to capacity in the swimming pool.
The medals have arrived (there will be awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each age group) and we have a small additional gift for everyone who completes the event courtesy of our sponsor http://www.garycooperpaving.co.uk in addition to your finisher’s medal. Thank you to Gary for his support with this year’s event.
British Triathlon have recently changed their rules on the use of swimming hats to reduce waste.
We will no longer be providing a swimming hat at registration for Norwich Junior Triathlon, so if you wish to wear one (or have long hair and would normally wear a hat when swimming in a public pool) please bring one with you for the event.
Hats will be available to purchase on the day from Little Fish (who run Hewett Academy pool) for £1.50 each.
