About the event

Returning for a 8th year, in 2019 is the  NHS Fun Triathlon.  NHS employees and their friends and families from across the country are invited to take part in the NHS Fun Triathlon by swimming 400m, cycling 20k and running 5k, either as a part of a relay team or as an individual.

Most people can swim, ride a bike or run a short distance and by encouraging teams of 3 to complete the event as a relay team, triathlon can become easily accessible to individuals who previously would never consider taking part.

Everyone can play a part –whether as a supporter, helper, relay team member or individual athlete. The event will predominantly focus on relay teams of three people but will also be open to individuals and play host to the annual NHS National Championships for the more competitive triathletes.

We hope you choose to take the challenge and experience the sense of achievement of completing a triathlon.
