The triSUP series is the ultimate alternative triathlon series, which replaces the traditional swim leg with a ‘SUP’ (stand up Paddleboard). Participants will therefore SUP, Ride and Run. SUPing has seen massive growth in recent years and is one of the fastest growing sports in the world.
The new triSUP Series aims to encourage people into Triathlon who have previously been put off by the swim leg. SUPing is accessible and easy to learn thus removing the traditional block to the normal triathlon.
The triSUP series is the brain child of Martin Barden who was the founder of UK Cycling Events, (sold earlier this year), which is the largest and best known cycling events business in the UK. His pedigree certainly should mean the events will be faultlessly organised. Event entry includes; Safety boat coverage, medical and mechanical support, SAG wagons, well stocked High5 Feed stations, finisher medals, certificates and a Muc-Off equipped cleaning station.
This spin on the traditional triathlon is currently only being conducted in the UK, but with the growing popularity of triathlon’s and paddleboarding in the US, we think it will catch on quickly and soon be an option stateside. Pretty cool to see how traditional sports are being blended with boardsports and pushing limits.
