If you’re new to triathlon, or considering taking up the sport, we have plenty of advice and information for the eager beginner.

Taking up  swim, bike and run can be pretty daunting, so our mission is to make things easy for you as you start out on your triathlon journey. We’ll break down all you need to know about the sport, from the various distances you can attempt to the equipment you’ll need.

If you fancy trying aquathlon or duathlon as a lead-in to tri, we have handy guides on those disciplines too.

In terms of equipment, we’ll attempt to give you an honest appraisal of what you will likely need to have just to get started. This section remember is for beginners so we do not go too high-end in our suggestions.

Finally for now, we will bring you regular tips and training plans to help you attack specific races and distances as you gradually raise your tri game.
