All you need are running shoes, a bicycle and a helmet!
The race starts with running, then cycling, then another round of running. Hybrid/mountain bikes are recommended for the junior distance, while a road bike may be used for the full distance.
The clocks keeps ticking during transitions, so it’s an advantage to be quick with shoe changes (and with putting on/taking off your helmet).
Drafting is not permitted.
Cycling in the transition area is not permitted.
A helmet is required during the bike portion.
This year’s trail triathlon will be on Saturday, June 20th at 11 am at Haukvannet. It’s a supersprint (300m swimming, 4km biking in the woods, and 1.7 km running around Haukvannet), so you can test your swimming technique and bicycle balance, and your quick transitions.
-The swim is in Haukvannet, one of Bymarka’s many lakes, with expected temperatures 15-18 degrees. A wetsuit is not required, but is recommended.
-The bike is primarily on a wide, gravel path, with short trail sections. One downhill is a bit “technical”, but you can run down instead if needed. A mountain bike with front suspension and wide tires is recommended.
-The run is on a paved path around Haukvannet.
The start, transition area, and finish are by the Hauken cabin. There will be an obligatory race briefing at 10 am at the same area.
We look forward to a fun morning in Bymarka!
The Trøndertri triathlon festival takes place on June 28th at Grønneset (by Ånøya) in Skaun county. There’s something for all ages and abilities. In addition to a sprint distance triathlon, there will be activities for children, teens, and spectators, with refreshments, music, and an announcer.
The course begins with 750m of swimming in Ånøya, starting and ending at Grønneset. The bike portion is 20 km (total) out-and-back on paved roads south of the starting area, with rolling hills. The run portion is a flat 5 km on gravel and paved roads north of Grønneset, finishing at Grønneset.

There is no fee for the activities for children.

Parking at Ånøya is limited to about 100 cars, so we hope that participants will make an effort to carpool.
