Race Brief

We have had a few reports of competitors not receiving the Race Brief sent out on 31 August. If you have not received your copy please check your junk mail or download the Race Brief here.

How do I enter?

Entries for the 2021 event are now closed. We expect to open entries for 2022 Norwich Junior Triathlon in February 2022. We hope that this will be a return to the standard format of a Triathlon and that we will be able to return to our normal venue – Hewett Academy in Norwich. A link will be posted on this page.

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.

Note that for 2020/21 Norwich Junior Triathlon will be run as a Duathlon and competitors will run then cycle then run on the grass field at CNS. The distances for each age group are:

AgeRunCycleRun
TriStar Start (age 8)400m800m200m
