Y-Tri bookings now open

Get ready to sweat, Y-Tri returns Monday 10th October, so this is your warning alarm to book your slot. Hurry – before they run out!

All ages and abilities take part and it's lots of fun. Below are last year's winners and their times. Will anyone beat them this year? Will the new bikes make a difference? All bets are off!

*News flash*

Please note, our new bikes have a cadence cap of 120 RPM. However, the more watts (resistance + cadence) you generate, the more distance you will cover. So adjust to find the right combination for you. 

All we ask is that you have a minimum 8% resistance. (Should you want more, though, then the skies the limit!)

Choose your competition

The competition involves two triathlon options:

  • Dry (row, cycle, run): Monday 10th October – Wednesday 12th October and Monday 17th October – Wednesday 19th October.
  • Wet (cycle, run, swim): Monday 24th October – Wednesday 26th October.

Choose your distance

In each category there is a big choice of distances – ultra (the longest), full, half and mini (the shortest). On top of these there are also sets of over-60 and youth distances which are different.

How to book

Talk with one of the gym team. Their office is on the same level as the main sports hall, by the green sofa at the bottom of the staircase.

Choosing your goal

Here are last year's fastest times. Will each competitor retain their crown, or might you be the one to take it from them?
