Mid Week Super Sprints

If anyone fancies doing a short triathlon – there are 3 mid week races being organised by Tri-ology – that you might be interested in…

Voted Triathlon England’s North East Region Event of the Year 2014 and Runner Up in the Yorkshire Region 2015!

The events are ideal for beginners looking to complete their first open water triathlon as well as the more experienced tri-athlete looking to test themselves before a big race or use as a training session.

The course consists of a 400m open water swim at Ellerton Water Park, followed by a 15.5km bike on quiet country roads before completing a flat 2.2km run course around the lake.

Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten something, as there is an onsite Triathlon Shop providing all your needs.

Please note: There will be a Triathlon England Motorcycle Official enforcing drafting rules.

Transition Training – 20 Apr 2016


As the race season approaches a session will be held to practice the fourth discipline of triathlon, transitions.

The session will be held on Wed 20 Apr at 7pm by the Tadcaster bus station. There are car parks either side of the footbridge for anyone who is driving.

We will cover the following aspects of transitions:

  • The rules
  • Kit required (and what you don’t need…)
  • Bike mounting and dismounting
  • And for the brave, mounting the bike with shoes attached…

You will need the following – Bike, bike shoes (if worn), helmet and running shoes.  Addition kit such as a number belt, sunglasses or a wetsuit(!) can also be brought along to practice with.

The session should last no longer than an hour and the pool will then be open from 8:30 for the dolphins in the group.

Any questions please ask.



Summer Series 2016

OK – its here – never mind the upcoming WTS in Leeds or the Tour De Yorkshire coming our way – this is what you have been waiting for – yes its the T3 Summer Series…

Its sooo big – we’ve even given it its own link on the web page!

The first race in the series is going to be the Tadcaster Triathlon on May 2nd- well it seems a good place to start – the rest will be made up as I go along – no I mean will be a well balanced and structured series of races with a fine balance of swimming, cycling and running – and in no way will be biased towards my own strengths/weaknesses…

Don’t forget as a member of T3 you can get a massive £10 discount off the entry fee for the Tad Tri – so if you are not already a member make sure you join up first and we’ll send you the secret code!

So stop reading this – go get out and do some training (there that was my bit of motivational speaking) and I hope to see you during the Series…
