Virtual Triathlons with Castle Race Series for 2022
Following the success of the virtual triathlons and virtual multisport events during lockdowns over the last 2 years, Castle Race Series have made Virtual Triathlon part of the winter race calendar helping to give athletes motivation and another way to benchmark performance over the winter months.
Kicking off later this month, you can join in a variety of distances and do your virtual triathlon over a whole weekend, giving you plenty of time to fit it in. You also have the luxury of deciding to do each of the legs indoors or outdoors, you simply upload the evidence to the portal and see how you are doing on the live leaderboard.
Each race will have prizes and medals for those competing and a virtual prize giving.
You can sign up to take part across the following weekends:
- 28th – 30th January
- 25th – 27th February
- 25th – 27th March
Olympic Triathlon – 1500m Swim // 40K Cycle // 10K Run
Sprint Triathlon – 750m Swim // 20K Cycle // 5K Run
13-15years Triathlon – 400m Swim // 8K Cycle // 2K Run

This is a great way to test the water if you are new to triathlon and a great way to benchmark how your winter training is going.
For added motivation some of the Pro’s and Ambassadors will be joining in, In January, a long-term friend of the Castle Race Series and GB Athlete, Sam Wade. In February, they will be joined by Emma Cowper and Hana Kolar.
