NEW for 2021
The Ripon virtual triathlon sponsored by Black Sheep Brewery
Over the week Saturday 26th June 2021 to Sunday 4th July 2021 the NYP Tri Club, sponsored by Black Sheep Brewery brings you the virtual Ripon Triathlon 2021.
There are five races;
1. Standard Triathlon (Swim workout video* / 40km bike / 10km run)
2. Sprint Triathlon (Swim workout video* / 20km bike / 5km run)
3. Standard Duathlon (10km run / 40km bike / 5km run)
4. Sprint Duathlon (5km run / 20km bike / 2.5km run)
5. 5km Run
*As we do not know what the Government guidelines will be around swimming and open water swimming at this time, and as most of us have had a lot of time out of the water we are making the Standard and Sprint triathlon swimming sections equal for all by having two dry land swimming videos for you to complete. These will be a home based circuit that you can time yourself completing and upload your results. There will be two different circuits to reflect the distances.
For the Standard Triathlon and Duathlon competitors must be 17yrs +
For the Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon competitors must be 15yrs +
For the 5km run competitors must be aged 8yrs and older
All finishers will receive a medal and event buff which will be posted out and a downloadable finisher certificate.
