Last chance for British Aquathlon Championships entry

The British Aquathlon Championships returns to the calendar after a long absence next Saturday. You've only got until Monday to enter...

For the first time in nine years, the British Aquathlon Championship returns to the calendar next weekend, Saturday 17th July 2021.

Last held in 2012, the event was dropped from the annual British championship schedule of races the following year, with the expansion of the Home Nations championships. The Triathlon England Aquathlon Championship event has been held ever since, alongside similar competitions in Scotland and Wales.


A busy day at a familiar venue

The event will take place next Saturday, held at the London 2012 Olympic Rowing venue of Eton Dorney as part of the Tri and Para Tri Festival organised by the The Arctic One Foundation.

There is still, just about, time to get your entries in.

The British Aquathlon Championships will be just part of a busy day of activity, with the British Paratriathlon Championships (no doubt featuring many of our Tokyo-bound squad) also taking place, alongside further open events over the Sprint, Super Sprint and Super Duper Sprint (!) distance.

Something for everyone

There is no event that I have ever been to as inclusive as this one.

If you’ve ever wanted to try a triathlon but were nervous, or know anybody else in a similar position, then I cannot recommend this event highly enough.

Event organisers, Arctic One, put a huge amount back into the sport and these events are incredibly accessible and held in a friendly and inclusive manner. I was part of the event back in 2019 when they hosted the ITU Paratriathlon World Cup, and am looking forward to being back there again next weekend.

Don’t hang about – race entries close on Monday.
