Shrewsbury Sprint Tri & Quad

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, SYtri have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Triathlon & Quadrathlon event. If you had entered the event you will have received an email from us. Please check your spam if you have not seen it.

This has not been an easy decision, but, after considering the safety of competitors, organisers and volunteers and how we manage the event given the stringent social distancing measures that would be required, we feel this is the right decision.

We can confirm that the event will return next year on Sunday 5th September 2021. The Showground has been booked and we look forward to receiving entries later this year.


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 4km downstream and back paddle, following the swim and before the cycle leg.

If you’re travelling to this event from out of town there are plenty of local hotels for you to look at or why not camp on site.
