Sprint and Novice Distance 

Sprint & Novice Distance Triathlon



If you are a deferred entrant from 2020 you will have received an email from the Race Director that explains your entry options.

The Taunton Deane Triathlon has been an annual event at Wellington Sports Centre since 1998. The Covid postponed 2020 race would have been our 21st Anniversary but as of April 2021 I am now pleased to announced there will be a race in 2021 - SUNDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER 2021

To make the Race Day an anniversary special there will be triathlon and aquathlon races on the 19th. See the Aquathlon Race Page for details of that race.

ALSO as this past year has been tough to train you will be able to change races for free so if you enter the triathlon and things dont go to plan and you want to do the aquathlon instead you can. You will get details about this with your race pack and start times, etc nearer the date.

We are very pleased to have partnered with University Centre Somerset as sponsors of this event.

Races for all abilities from beginners to experienced athletes. 

The novice race comprises a 200m (8 lengths x 25m indoor pool) swim, a 12k bike section and a 2.5k run. Suitable for all abilities aged 15 (as at 31.12.21) and above. There are separate races for Youths (15-16), Juniors (17-19) and adults 20+

The sprint race is over a 400m swim, 22k bike and 5k run course. Separate races for Youths (15-16), Juniors (17-19) and Adults 20+

We pride ourselves on putting on a friendly, SAFE, well organised event.  This is a BTF sanctioned race with secure transition area, part road closure, signage, marshalling and chip timing. Wellington Sports Centre have very good changing facilities and beverages will be available. There is good parking in Wellington.

There is a FREE training day on Sunday 5th September 2021 where you can practice the course and get top tips from club members and coaches.

Read the Race Information Pack for general details about this race. A fresh version will be added in the run up to this year's race, but this will give you a very good idea of the courses, rules and timings for the day.

Last year we had lots of disappointed entrants and lots of people who 'WERE' going to enter. We have learned and offered an early bird as well as keeping all costs as low as we possibly can. Having a race with no traffic lights to ruin your time if your keen, lots of marshalls and having the event risk assessed and managed under BTF scrutiny takes a lot of volunteer time which the club does to promote triathlon.

Please dont wait for the closing date as we need to know that we have enough entrants to make the races viable. We are trying to make triathlon accessible to all and local so please support us - we will consider deferals and other circumstances if you enter and can't race (we are not an event business like ironman and challenge where we take your money and don't care - we want you to get your monies worth and you will).
