Celebrating Stoke on Trent's position as the European City of Sport 2016, this weekend of triathlon takes place in the historic setting of Trentham Gardens: a stunning venue that few triathlons in the world can equal. With elite, age group and children's races, this is an event for all.
Known as the happy island, Aruba in the Caribbean is the venue for the latest addition to the Challenge family of triathlons. Attracted by the course which takes in the crystal clear waters of the island, rolling hills and white beaches, a top class field of elite athletes line up to take part in 2016's inaugural event.
Taking place in north Wales, this weekend of triathlon is not for the faint-hearted, incorporating the Snowdonia Triathlon, the second event in the Always Aim High Adventure Triathlon Series. Competitors start with a stunning swim in the lake at Plas y Brenin in the shadow of the beautiful mountains, before taking on the formidable peaks themselves in a 60km bike ride and an off-road run to the finish. Commentary comes from Patrick Winterton.
One of the most popular and challenging triathlons on the UK Calendar, this multi-terrain event takes place on the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales, with 1000 athletes taking on a course that includes a sea swim and a run across the dunes and rocky beaches of Newborough Forest. This is the final event in the Always Aim High Adventure Triathlon Series. Commentary comes from Patrick Winterton.
This five day, non-stop adventure race takes teams of four on a 600km journey across Ireland to the finish in Killarney. Along the way, competitors will have to climb Ireland's highest mountains, kayak on rough seas, and take on massive cycle stages as well as caving and coasteering challenges to test their mental and physical limits. Patrick Winterton provides commentary.
This unique adventure race is a gruelling mix of running and sailing which takes teams of five on a journey up the west coast of Britain, from Wales to Scotland, battling rocks and tides as they sail 400 miles through some of the most challenging waters in Europe. Along the way, the yachts drop off runners who must climb the highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland, covering 82 further miles on land in just three days. A massive test of endurance, this event, which began in 1977, is a prestigious trophy on both the sailing and mountain running calendars. Commentary comes from Patrick Winterton.
