JT Hughes Group Shrewsbury Sprint Triathlon & Quadrathlon

Sunday 1st September 2019


The majestic town of Shrewsbury hosts The 2019 ‘JT Hughes Goup’ Shrewsbury Sprint Triathlon & Quadrathlon. Now in its 7th year, it has adapted to your needs and will be hoping to include family events as well. SYTri (Shrewsbury Triathlon Club) stage the event which provides a unique 500M (downstream-wetsuit required) river swim, followed by a fast 23K undulating bike course on country roads. Finishing with a 5K flat & fast traffic free run inside the showground (your supporters are never far away) on mixed surface paths. Excellent race for both beginners and experienced athletes looking for a PB!

The Quadrathlon includes a total 4.5km downstream and back paddle, following the swim and before the cycle leg.  The quadrathlon event is now fully booked, but as a World Cup race this year, a few spaces are being kept open for any overseas competitors.  If you are outside the UK and wish to enter, please email events@sytri.org
