Must Do Triathlons in 2021

With the year nearly over and next summer to look ahead to, it’s a great time t think about what challenges you might want to undertake next year. While many triathlons this year were postponed or cancelled, we can still look forward to the 2021 season!

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 2021.

  1. Outlaw Series – May to September 2021

With five 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 2021… 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.
