About the Race

Arctic One is pleased to be hosting our Tri and Paratri festival for the 7th year. The event as grown and is a celebration of sport with three different distances to try and both para and non-para waves.

We have added a few new events for 2021 and this year, as well as the triathlons, you can take part in an aquathlon (swim/run) or an aquabike (swim/bike). We will also host the British Paratriathlon Championships and the British Aquathlon Championships alongside our other events so it is a great opportunity to come and watch the country’s best athletes racing to be crowned national Champion and take on the same course!

The race takes place at the iconic Dorney Lake, Berkshire which hosted the Rowing at the Olympics in London 2012. The bike and run courses are around the lake on flat, closed roads!

The event is fully inclusive so it is a great opportunity to take part in some way, whether you are an experienced athlete or a complete novice, a para-athlete or not. We will have separate waves for Para-athletes and non para-athletes in most of the distances and an option of doing a relay with one or two others if you don’t want to do the whole event. Teams can be a mix of people including para athletes so a relay is a great option for families all to take part.
