Cheltenham Tri in the Park is Cheltenham Triathlon Club’s family friendly off-road super-sprint triathlon set within the beautiful boundaries of Cheltenham’s Pittville Park…
An indoor pool swim followed by an off-road cycle and run around the park this triathlon is ideal for families, those who are new to the sport and seasoned triathletes looking to try something a little bit different!
Both our Junior and Adult Triathlon events sold out in 2018 and 2019!
