THE ULTIMATE OFF-ROAD TRIATHLON   

#supbikerun... we have totally flipped the traditional triathlon format on its head. The swimming has been replaced with SUP (stand up paddle boarding) and both the bike and run are set on off-road trails and tracks.
Experience the ultimate off-road triathlon event and challenge with #supbikerun.

         THE UK’S TOUGHEST SUP TEAM CHALLENGE       
Back in 2018 for THE 3rd year, two days of stand up paddle boarding, music and food you’ll never forget.  Stamp the 3th/4th August in your diary and come join us.
Imagine paddling across three counties in England with a team of like-minded adventurers, just your team and your stand up paddle boards thrown against two days and 100 kilometres of fast water whilst trying to make to the finish line in a time to be proud of. This is no day picnic.
The TRENT100 promises to challenge you from the first stroke on day one in Staffordshire to the last gasp as you cross the finish line at Nottingham on day two.  Just entering it will impress your friends finishing will amaze them.
The TRENT100 is the U.K.’s longest team endurance challenge.
