BUCS Events

Triathlon typically has three main BUCS races throughout the year, Duathlon, Sprint Triathlon and Standard Triathlon.

BUCS Duathlon (Saturday 18th Nov 2023)

Mallory Park, Kirkby Mallory, Leicestershire, LE9 7QE

This is usually hosted in November, and has previously been hosted in both Castle Combe and Mallory Park near Leicester. A very beginner-friendly event, this is often most people's introduction inot multi-sport racing and there's zero pressure on you! We typically take a fairly large group of students to this race.

BUCS Sprint Triathlon (Sunday 5th May 2024)

Westonbirt House, Westonbirt, Nr Tetbury, Gloucestershire, GL8 8QG

This is hosted at the start of May, and has been locataed in Westonbirt and Somerford Keynes. It consists of a 750m swim, 20km bike on open roads, and a 5km run. Like the Duathlon, it is a beginner friendly event and anybody is welcome to enter. We aim to fund transport costs to the event and will take a coach for the team along with vans to transport your bikes.

BUCS Standard Distance Triathlon (Saturday 22nd Jun 2024)

Whitlingham Country Park, Whitlingham Ln, Norwich, NR14 8TR

This event is usually towards the end of May. It is a 1500m open water swim, 40km road bike, and a 10km run. We usually take a smaller team to this race due to the costs of attending and it being an open water event, however anybody is welcome to enter and we will do our best to help with the costs where possible.

ISB Training Camp

Sunday 28th January - Sunday 4th February 2024

Once exam season is over at the end of January, it's time for Inter-Semester Break (ISB)! In this week (before Semester 2 starts) we typically take around 30 students on a training camp/holiday in the sun for some fun and sociable training! Previous locations have included Tenerife, Calpe, and last year; Mallorca. It'll probably be the best week you'll have at uni (we're not kidding!), this is not one to miss! Keep an eye out for an information evening mid-way through Semester 1...


We run a variety of socials throughout the year, with something for everyone to get involved in, be sociable and meet new people! In the past, we've had everything from formal dinners at the end of each semester, casual drinks after Friday track at Happy Hour, post-race meals, ice-skating, and pretty much anything else you can think of!
