Following on from the success of last year's competition, this year's National Mixed Team Relay Club Championships will be hosted by Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon in Co. Galway on Saturday May 26th.

Mixed Relay is one of the most exciting types of triathlon, with athletes getting the chance to compete as part of a team over a quick super sprint format.

All Ages and Standards Welcome

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.

Mixed TEAM Relay Format

The race format will be run to ITU standards and is identical to the hugely popular elite level team triathlon, with each team made up of four athletes - two male and two female. Each athlete completes a super-sprint distance triathlon (approx 200 meter swim, 5km draft legal bike and 1.5km run) before tagging their team mate.

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.

All teammates must be registered as Triathlon Ireland members with the same club. Clubs may enter more than one team. 

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 ETU European Team Championships.
