Over one thousand four hundred competitors aged between 14 to 87 have taken part in the 2014 City of Birmingham Triathlon.
This is only the third year the event has been held in Birmingham with athletes of all abilities setting off on a lap of the lake at Sutton Park.
The City of Birmingham Triathlon is taking place in Sutton Park this morning.
Organisers say more than 1,300 people are competing in the event - now in its third year.
It involves an open water swim in Powell's Pool, a cycle around the closed-to-traffic roads within Sutton Park, before finishing with a run through heathland and woodland.
Starting in different 'waves' the Olympic male competitors were in the water at 7 am, with the last competitors expected to cross the finish line around 1.30 pm.
