Triathlons actually vary quite a lot from one to the next. That's great as it means you can line one up that fits your appetite for competition and challenge (as well as fitness).
Harder than the sum of it's parts, Triathlons are brutal endurance races that test the mind and spirit as much as the body. This is not for someone looking to train to lose 5lbs or for a generic goal to aim for. If you're willing to truly dedicate and push past your pre-conceived boundaries, then this is the challenge you need.
Not your usual distances but then again, you are swimming away from one of the world's most famous island prisons! Not the MOST difficult triathlon but still measuring a good 7/10 on the grind scale. The sand ladder is notably tiring. You'll also get to swim past the glowing Golden Gate bridge in the background, which is an experience in itself.
You should be able to complete at least 80% of a full triathlon length that you intend to race prior to the actual event. The last 20% is all blood and guts.
Yes. Providing you go into it well conditioned then you have nothing to worry about. Of course you will be sore, tired and aching perhaps like never before, but it's ultimately safe if you're prepared.
Prices depend, but often people do them for charitable causes so you can race for a cause. Check with your chosen triathlon to budget appropriately.
Rob was a fantastic guide. The trip was very enjoyable and Robs knowledge and expertise were great. Would defo recommend
Excellent service from start to finish. I booked the National 3 Peasks challenge in 24 hours. i had regular communication from Rob and the team prioe to the event checking in on my progress, which really spurred me on as well as a helpful fitness plan i has to folow. For the challenge itself Rob and Tim really helped put the group at ease, and was very encouraging. Such a credit to business. i would not hesitate at all in recommending bookitlist to friends and family and will define use again in the future. Thank you for pushing me to finish the challenge!
Just come back from completing the 24 hour natinal 3 Peaks Challenge with Bookitlist. 25-27th June 2021. From start to finish the group I was in was well looked after. From pick up to drop off the team were well organised & made the experience/challenge as enoyable & relaxing as possible. an unforgettable experience & will definitely be looking out for what other trips they have to offer.
Ironmans are technically triathlons, but with a fixed distance and usually more challenging courses. Not for the feint of heart.Discover Ironman
The National Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, often within 24 hours.
