Triathlon is often a sport which is perceived to be macho and reserved for elite athletes. At Brighton and Hove Triathlon it's our mission to break down these perceptions and show women and beginners that triathlon is not a sport to be feared but a fun and challenging adventure.

We had a whopping 40% women enter into 2017 and 2018, making us well above the national average of 28% female participation. We work closely with Heart Radio and This Girl Can to communicate strong female messaging and show ladies #ThisGirlCan.

We reached out to some of the inspirational ladies who are linked to Brighton and Hove Triathlon. If you need some convincing, read their fantastic stories...
