I've had a look on some of the tri websites mentioned but most of the events listed seem to be duathlons, and I have no idea about which events you can enter as a team...

Mildly curious about entering a tri sometime next year as a team with my little brothers. Youngest brother v keen (his team just came 7th/133 in Portugal, and he thinks he's a 'triathlon god' at the moment) older one not so - but can be replaced with boyfriend!

do you mean
relay: one event each
relay: all do each event consecutively
time trial: all do each event together

deal tri does a team event where you all go together and help each other. its only short and is great fun. or southwater relays usually in september are good, you go one after the other with an open water swim first.

Just about all the tri's I've entered and seen have relay options... even sprint ones...

London Tri does teams

thanks everyone (esp Juliejoo for her extremely valuable contribution ;-) )

I meant one event each, though I wouldn't mind doing a whole tri myself at some point.

Only thing that puts me off is the outside swimming, particularly the London Tri. I used to row on the Royal Docks, and the number of injections we had to have before we could go ON the water has really put me off going IN it! And besides, I know what the rowers do there ;-)

Still just about any tri will allow relay teams..
Go for it!!

There's a Tri in Manchester held where the world cup and commonweath ones. It's the 14th December I think and that can be entered as a team. There's no Swiming though it's the 3k Row, 15k Bike, 5k Run format

ooooh, I like the row, bike, run thing a LOT better! Are there any other tris that are rowing instead of swimming? December's a bit early...

I might even have a go at a whole one myself then... if we entered as a team for a row, bike, run, I'd end up doing the rowing and the swimmer (my boyf) would do the running. Might end up higher-placed though :-). I can out-row blokes, but not out-run them!

I likes the sound of that one too. Is it proper bike or gym bike though ?

Anyone have the details ?

If it's a tricycle, give me a call.

Agecroft RC!

I'm not going anywhere near it. Their rowing machines will crash. Their boats do...

Saw one of their Senior Men's VIIIs do the most spectacular crunch I've ever seen in the Head of the River Race about 6 years ago - hit the black buoy at Putney, just seconds short of the finish line... It must have hurt like hell, luckily loads of people around to help them out.

Well I'm not sure how as ergo can crash. It's a real road bike race and the running is outdoors too. I did it last year.

For anyone who is interested the winning time last year was 1.01.** not quite sure but I did it in 1.03.48 and I'd never really run and I'd never been more than 2 miles on a bike before the event.

I'll be there again this year as well.
