When I introduce people to the sport of triathlon the main barrier I hear is that “I cannot swim” or that “I have not been in a pool since I was 8” etc.

Undoubtedly, swimming blocks a lot of people from participating in triathlon, whether that is down to your current swim fitness/skills or your lack of experience of open water swimming.

The good news is that you don’t have to swim to do a triathlon.

You can create a relay team and get someone else to swim so you don’t have to.

Relay teams are a great way to get involved in the event of the year in Westport.

You can enter a team into the Sprint or the Olympic distance.

One person needs to swim, another to bike and another to run. You can pick your strongest discipline and shine on the day.

Get your friends together to form a team for the event, each member gets a goody bag, medal and meal after the event.
