Mixed team relay (4 person race)
250m swim / 5km bike / 1.5km run x 4*
This new triathlon race format, due to be part to the 2021 Olympics is rare in the European triathlon market with little opportunity for triathletes to enjoy the exciting and fast moving pace. However, since Mixed Team relays joined the Castle Triathlon Series in 2017 it has gathered momentum and now welcomes a yearly pilgrimage of club championships!
A team of four participants race in a tag team with each member completing a short triathlon, within the Castle grounds and closed roads, before handing over to the next team member. This fast and exciting event offers the opportunity to race with club members, friends and family on a fun and competitive level.
Two mixed team relay formats:
- Mixed Team Relay – Four adult team members consisting of two males and two female participants.
- ‘Family’ Mixed Team Relay – Four members including at least one adult and no specific gender split required. Minimum age is 13 ( as of 31 December of competing year).
The racing take place at the Saturday afternoon at four of our five castles; Lough Cutra Castle – Ireland, Cholmondeley Castle -Cheshire, Castle Howard – Yorkshire and Chateau de Chantilly – France.
*distances can vary slightly at each castle venue.
