What is Mixed Team Relay?

Mixed Team Relay is a fun team event across a super-sprint course. The team must consist of two men and two women, each racing a 200 metre swim, 5 kilometre bike and 1.5 kilometre run.

In order to be considered for the National Championship prize, all team members must be members of the same Triathlon Ireland affiliated club.

Clubs can enter more than one team, so get chatting to your clubmates and get your team together!

Who can take part?

Mixed Relay has proven extremely popular with athletes of all standards and allows regular age groupers and more advanced athletes race together. The minimum age requirement for athletes is 15 years and there is no upper limit on age or ability for those taking part

Starting formats are fixed as follows: 1st Female – 1st Male – 2nd Female – 2nd Male.

Each athlete tags his or her teammate inside the ‘Relay Zone’ and the first team to cross the line is the winner.

Represent Ireland at the European Championships

The winning team in this year’s competition will be presented with a Triathlon Ireland perpetual trophy and will also qualify, along with the runners-up, to represent Ireland at the European Team Championships.
