The event takes place at the NSC. Having the pool, perimeter cycle track and running track at one location makes this an ideal location. Great for youngsters to get involved in a traffic free environment and experience what it is to be a triathlete.
This year's event is scheduled for 22nd April
May Sprint Tri.
This has become a triathlon weekend with an individual race on Saturday and relay on Sunday.
An ideal race for novice and first timers to have a go without the added anxiety of open water swimming. The minimum age for competitors is 15 in the year of competition. For the experienced it a good gauge of how their form is at the start of the season.

Microgaming Triathlon Championships
Sunday 3rd September 2017 at Mooragh Park
*** 9AM START TIME***
Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Mooragh Park in Ramsey, the Isle of Man Triathlon Championships offer the opportunity to race over both Sprint & Standard distances. The lake is shallow and therefore ideal for those new to Open Water Swimming and to 1st Time Triathletes. The bike course is mildly undulating and the run course is pan flat.
The facilities at the Event include Electronic Timing & Results, Changing Rooms, Hot Showers, and Refreshments.
Start Time 9 am
Sprint Distance 750m Swim Course
The cycle and run courses are the same for both distances. Sprint Cycle = 1 lap Standard Cycle = 2 laps Sprint Run = 2 laps Standard Run = 4 laps
The minimum age for the sprint race is 15 and for the standard distance 17 on 31st December, in the year of competition. It would be great to have more younger competitors taking part.
The Aquathlon (Swim – Run) was held for the first time in 2016 following the cancellation of the championships owing to road works and the need to fill the void with a race.
The Aquathlon was borne. This event will hopefully be tempting to swimmers who fancy having a go at a multisport event at the end of their swimming season ( you may even find you like it).
Younger age groups also catered for
Age 11-12 300m swim , 2.2k run - if sufficient numbers
Age13-14 500m swim, 3.3k run
Age 15-16 , and open 750m swim, 5.5k run.
