2022 Triathlon Series

After two years, our Triathlon Series is back for 2022!

The 2022 series has been reduced in size, but will consist of 11 events, all delivered by your dedicated Triathlon Team.

The events vary from beginner suitable ‘Come & Tri’ events, ‘Sprint’ races right through to two junior events and the annual Peebles Duathlon.

Some of the changes you can expect from this year can be seen below. More information, including any COVID-19 guidance, will be communicated with participants prior to the event.

Please note, we will not be able to accept any entries on the day of event – all participants must be registered seven days prior to any event.

Important update on Peebles Triathlon – Change of venue

Due to a fire at Peebles Swimming Pool and a continued closure, we have no option but to move the Peebles Triathlons to Galashiels.

This decision has been taken after careful consideration and to ensure the best competitor experience. We are changing the location of all the Peebles Triathlon events as follows:

Duathlon: This will remain in Peebles, but race HQ will now be located at the Gytes Leisure Centre.

Triathlon Sprint, Come & Tri and Junior events: all these events will be relocated to Galashiels Swimming Pool.

We appreciate that this is a significant change to these events, and as such we offer all participants the following three options:

  1. Participants willing to move their entry to Galashiels – you don’t need to do anything, your entry will be automatically changed. We look forward to seeing you at the Galashiels Swimming Pool on September 24 & 25.
  1. Participants not able to relocate with their events, or not wishing to relocate can withdraw and receive a full refund. Please email us at triathlon@liveborders.org.uk to request your refund.
  1. Participants can carry over their entry to the 2023 Triathlon event in Peebles. If you wish to carry over please email us at triathlon@liveborders.org.uk to request your transfer.

If you are to maintain your entry, you do not need to contact us. If you are to apply for a refund or want to carry over your entry to 2023, please advise us by 31 August through the contacts given above.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but thank you for your understanding and support.

Changes to the 2022 Triathlon Series 

We are currently updating our competitor pack which will be available online very soon.

  • All events will be COVID compliant and will adhere to the Government guidance in place at the time of the event.
  • Registration and entry to transition will be staggered and work on a rolling basis. You will be given your time slots in the week leading up to each event once entries have closed. These will be published on our website and allows us the opportunity to confirm any regulations that may be in place at the time.
  • The winners of the overall series will be awarded at Peebles at the final event in the Series. To compete in the Overall Series, a competitor must compete in a minimum of three events (both junior events for junior series). A competitors best three scores will be used for calculating the Overall Series winners. Duathlon results are included in the overall scores.
  • Each competitor is automatically entered into one of the above categories e.g. Senior or Vintage, according to the date of birth given on the entry form.
  • Entries for all events close seven days prior to race day. There will be no exceptions, and entries are not available on the day.
  • A race briefing and any changes will be posted on our website in the lead up to all events. Any changes or updates will be relayed to competitors at either registration or before each swim heat.
