Triathlon & Aquathlon


During the spring term, we host the annual ISA National Triathlon, attracting nearly 300 competitors from independent schools across the UK. The whole school is involved in the planning and delivery of the event, which welcomes British Triathlon officials, ISA Sports administrators, and a professional timing system provided by Racetiming Solutions. We are also very fortunate to have a Great Britain Triathlete and Duathlete as part of our teaching staff, and his passion has inspired countless students to take up the sport themselves, with several competing in national competitions.


Aquathlon is similar to Triathlon; however, it focusses exclusively on swimming and running. Lucton has hosted this unique event for over ten years and, much like our Tercentenary Cross-Country run, our Aquathlon event attracts athletes from many other local schools, and we also host the ISA Regional Aquathlon too. Lucton is currently the Midlands ISA Schools champions and have been Herefordshire Schools champions for the last three years.
