About Us

Five years ago, having watched London 2012 Olympics and feeling very inspired by the success of Team GB we decided to start a triathlon club at our university in order to meet new people and to get fit. The club started as two people stood handing out fliers and within two years grew into 100 people strong.

Having spent the time arranging events and competitions for the club we gained a great deal of experience with running sporting events. Since graduating we have been concentrating more on our individual sporting goals. However, 2017 brings a fresh approach and now we’re going back to what we know best. Organising events for others to take part in across the UK and further a field.

At heart we are competitors, we know what makes a race great and what makes your day the best it can be. We know that winning comes in many flavours and isn’t just the person who finishes first!

So whether your aim is to win one of our races, to beat you previous time, to beat your friend or housemate (our personal favourite) or just to finish. We have a race for you. With no cut off times and always a welcome cheer at the finishing line, we hope you choose First Stride Events as your race partner.
