The GO-TRI Event
Frequently Asked Questions
I'm worried that I will be the only beginner taking part
This GO-TRI is aimed specifically at beginners so although there will be some more able competitors taking part, this event is aimed at introducing people to the sport of triathlon so all abilities are welcome.
I don't have any triathlon equipment, can I still take part?
Absolutely! All you need is a swimming costume, a bike and helmet, and some trainers. There are no rules on what type of equipment is needed just as long as they are safe to use.
I don't have a helmet can i still take part?
Helmets are compulsory and must be worn by all competitors.
Can I walk during the run?
Of course, this is your event and you can complete it how you wish.
I haven't been to a GO-TRI before, what do I need to do when I arrive?
We recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the start time so that you can unpack your bike and register for the event. On arrival at the Arena Leisure Centre there will be marshals who can direct you to the registration tent and transition area.
Can I enter the event on the day?
Unfortunately entries cannot be taken on the day of the event. This is so that we can calculate everybody's start times based on their estimated swim time.
