  • What is a Enduro Triathlon?

A enduro race is considered as the most brutal forms of triathlon as competitors complete three mini triathlons but if they are not within 90 seconds of the leader after each discipline they are eliminated from the race.

The quickest athletes on the swim and bike in the final triathlon circuit can use a 'shoot' which allows them to cut a corner to save time and energy.

Some of the biggest names in world triathlon including British silver medalists Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee from the Tokyo 2020 Olympics will be competing.
