Sprint & super-sprint triathlons: 14 of the UK's best for beginners

Made the decision to do your first triathlon and want to know which one is the best for the tri newbie? Here, are what we think are, the UK's top 14 short offerings perfect for those dipping their toe into triathlon waters for the first time


Windsor, Berkshire

Okay, there may be easier beginner triathlons, but we’d be hard-pressed to pick a greater race to do your first tri than the Windsor Triathlon.

Held since 1991 and perennially popular ever since, no other UK race oozes tri history like Windsor. How often do you get to swim in the shadow of the Queen’s gaff and bike on open roads around the Great Park?
