A quick overview:

Cheltenham Tri in the Park is Cheltenham Triathlon Club’s national award winning, 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, 2019, 2021 and 2022!
