Leisure & Culture Dundee's - Indoor Team Triathlon

Put yourself to the test and enter a team of 3 into our Indoor Team Triathlon. As the event is fully indoors, the first person will swim in our training pool at Olympia, the next will carry on the challenge on our cycling machines, with the last team mate sprinting home on our treadmills. All of the times will be combined to give us your team total. Why not join forces with your work colleagues or friends and sign up for this fun and exciting event?

Distances are set within the Super Sprint bracket which involves a 400m swim, 10km cycle and 2.5km run, making it easy for anyone to take part. Everyone will receive a certificate for taking part with winners also receiving medals and a trophy. We'll also put participants in touch with M3 Monifieth Tri-Club should anyone wish to train towards a full event themselves in the future.

Start times will be allocated based on projected ability of each team as detailed on your Application Form i.e. slower teams will be racing first and faster teams later in the day.

Teams are not required to stay once you have finished, had your photo taken and received your certificate, unless you are in a position whereby you might finish in the top 3. The leaderboard will be continuously updated to indicate which teams are winning and what their target times are. Should teams wish to stay then they are obviously more than welcome to do so and cheer on the other competitors.

Our event is being supported by M3 Monifieth Tri-Club who will have members on hand throughout the day to answer any questions participants may have.

Unfortunately, participants will not be able to take their own photos during the event due to members of the public being present within the building.

All participants will receive a certificate for taking part. The top 3 teams will also receive a medal and a goody bag with Trophies for the winners. The winning team on the day will also receive a free 1 month membership to Leisure & Culture Dundee’s Leisureactive Membership programme which provides unlimited access to our swimming pools and fitness studios across the city.

We will also be offering a goody bag and a 1 month Leisureactive membership to the fastest individual swimmer, cyclist and runner on the day. 

M3 Monifieth Tri-Club are very kindly supporting this event and will be entering all participants into a prize draw to receive a free 1 year membership to their club.

Results will be updated throughout the event to highlight the current leaders. Teams who have completed their event will receive certificates whilst their team photos are taken with the presentation of winners being held once all teams have completed their events.

Presentations will be done for the top 3 teams along with the fastest swimmer, cyclist and runner. Teams are more than welcome to stay until the presentations to congratulate our winners.

Full results will be available for any teams who would like this information.
