Now in its fifth year our GO TRI Woking Series once again returns to Woking Park. Our series of super sprint races represents a great opportunity for those looking to either get into triathlon or practice for a bigger event with a spectator friendly, well organised local event.

Pool in the Park provides the venue for our 200m swim with a snake style swim in a 25m pool. After the swim its a short run to transition and out on to the open road with slightly undulating terrain. To finish up you’ve got a lapped run course around the park making the whole event being very spectator friendly.

With events for both Adults and Juniors, this low key family-friendly event is a great way to get out on a Sunday morning and take part in a triathlon without all the fuss & frills of a big event.

The swim is based out of the competition pool at Pool in the Park in Woking. Operated by Freedom leisure this 6 lane competition pool provides the perfect environment for our event complete with a viewing gallery for spectators/supporters.

For the Bike course is out onto the open roads for a short lapped course based around 4 roundabouts. All the roads are generally good in surface and with no major climbs its a short & easy/fast course.

The run is based in Woking Park where the swim is located so having to returned into transition you’ve got a nice run around the tarmac paths around the perimeter of the park. As a lapped course you’ll pass transition twice before heading up the finish line.
