Fusion Events

Fusion regularly run Junior Aquathlon and host the National youth Championships. Please see the Fusion Events page for more details.

Aquathlon

The backbone of competition for Under 17’s in Scotland is aquathlon. This format of racing consists of a swim then run and distances vary by age group. See below.

Aquathlon is a fun format and excellent for developing basic fitness, triathlon skills, and monitoring progress. Aquathlon is also an easier access in to racing as the format is fairly quick and removes any complications of cycling such as bike transport, transitions and closed roads for racing on.

See the Junior Race Calendar for this year’s events.

Aquathlon distances are determined by age grouping. Age is taken as your age on the  31 December of the year of competition.
