Hosted in Nottingham, just as it has been since 1991, the Zoot Triathlon Relays also saw new elite style relays and team time trials take place on Sunday alongside the traditional format.

Sunday

Saturday saw hundreds of teams take part in two waves of relays that offered prizes in men’s, women’s, mixed and open categories across a range of age-groups. The quickest teams got all four relay members around the 500m swim, 15km bike and 5km run course in less than three hours, whilst others went round at a more sedate pace in the freakishly hot 30 degree temperatures. 

Teams from Optima, Tricamp-Tfn, Army, Erdinger AF, Cambridge University and BRAT bagged the top prizes and many of those were back on Sunday morning to race again in the new elite format team heats.
