Why Triathlon?

Triathlon is a sport where it doesn’t matter how old you are, what fitness level, your ability or disability, or even your commitment! It is one that fits all and is enjoyed by everyone around the world, it is a community and family.

Supporting communities to be active

We are helping to change lives by supporting activities that encourage and inspire young people to give Swim Bike Run a try amd learn important life skills.

Supporting communities to be active

Triathlon Trust aims to provide access to fun, inclusive multi-sport activities to children and young people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in sports.

Through fundraising and our partners and sponsors, our ambition is to provide:

  • Access to sporting venues by providing free travel passes or free passes to sport programmes.
  • Training coaches and support staff who might not otherwise be able to participate.
  • Supplying equipment for swim, bike, run activities suitable for all ages and ability levels.
  • Assisting emerging talent with funding for training, event entry fees, coaching staff and equipment.
  • Supporting clubs with the development of youth sections.

We are aligned with British Triathlon Programmes and are trialling support in six active places across the UK.
