Must Do Triathlon Events in 2023

With 2022 over and summer to look ahead to, it’s a great time to think about what challenges you might want to undertake this year!

A great way to keep up the motivation throughout winter and in pre-season training is to have an event to look forward to, and with the coming season looking more hopeful for triathlons, now is a great time to start looking for a challenge! We’ve picked out a range of events – both with HIGH5 on course and not.

Here are our top triathlons in the UK for 2023:

Outlaw Series – May to September 2023

With six fantastic events to choose from, it’s easy to see why Outlaw is the UK’s favourite long distance triathlon series. If you’re looking to take on a 70.3 or full distance triathlon in 2022… then look no further! From world class organisation, fully covered on-course support to great feed stations and a fantastic post-race meal. There are so many reasons to choose Outlaw next year but get in there fast as these events sell out quickly! On course HIGH5 will be with you all the way – you can find our products at feed stations on any Outlaw Triathlon.

Snowman  – 29 - 30 July 2023

Starting with an open water swim in a lake surrounded by mountains and finishing with a run leg straight up one of those mountains, The Snowman calls itself the toughest triathlon in the UK for good reason. If adventure and adrenalin is your cup of tea, then this spectacular triathlon in the heart of North Wales is for you. You’ll be supported on course with HIGH5 Energy Drink and Energy Gels at feed stations.

Cardiff Triathlon  – 24 – 25 June 2023

Signing up for the Cardiff Triathlon is your ticket to compete in one of the UK's finest city triathlons. Not only should you expect a completely closed road route and coverage that is beamed across the world, but you should also expect a race that you want to share with everyone. With all distances from Super-Sprint to Olympic and the Sprint Distance World Championship Qualifier there really is something for every ability at the Cardiff Triathlon. Sold out in 2022, tickets are in high demand so booking early is essential.
