Last year’s study by the Triathlon Industry Association gathered over 3,500 responses and found:

• Running is a core area for most respondents to get into tri
• Most are committed to tri, with over half training 5-10 hours per week over winter
• The average UK triathlete’s salary is £45,000
• The vast majority (83%) of triathletes are college or degree educated
• The South East and London are the UK’s dominant tri regions

The findings of this industry survey will be presented at the Triathlon Show, Sandown Park on Friday 28th February 2014 (more details on the show here).
