With 2021 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 2022:
Outlaw Series – May to September 2022
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.
Hever Castle - 24th September 2022
Hever Castle Triathlon is the UK's second biggest triathlon and the finale of the UK triathlon season. With its festival atmosphere, range of distances for all ages and levels, Hever Castle is an instant classic and guaranteed great weekend. Alongside the scenic backdrop of the castle itself, famous for its association with the Tudors, there's something for every triathlete.
IRONMAN UK – 3rd July 2022
England's only full-distance IRONMAN, this is one for the triathlon bucket list. Known for electric spectator support and stunning bike course scenery, this is for anyone with a full distance triathlon on their goal list for 2022.
Snowman – 30th July 2022
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.
Royal Windsor Triathlon – 12th June 2022
With length options for every level, Royal Windsor Triathlon is one of the UK’s most legendary triathlons. It’s not hard to see why it’s been awarded BTF’s ‘Event of the Year’ seven times – with everything from a brilliant atmosphere, picturesque historical location and quality organisation.
Helvellyn Triathlon – 11th September 2022
Another of the toughest triathlons in the UK, this time set in the picturesque Lake District. With the cycle stretch including the Kirkstone Pass – dubbed the “Struggle” – and the run taking you up and down Hellvellyn itself, it’s easy to understand why this is no ordinary triathlon.
Birmingham Triathlon – 18th June 2022
This Triathlon will be held at Alderford Lake in Whitchurch, with a flat countryside bike course and grass run around the lake! This popular outdoor swimming venue is spectator friendly and offers other open water activities for all the family. The spring-fed freshwater lake has excellent water quality and no current so why not make a family day of it.
