Our Story

MyTriathlon was created in 2008 in the early days of triathlon. Two friends who began training together at their local triathlon club went on to race a Sprint distance, followed by an Olympic distance, before finally completing an Ironman together and finishing a mere five minutes apart! Their journey took them to the committee of their local Triathlon Club in Manchester and onto the Boards of British Triathlon and Triathlon England, before they decided to launch the Tatton Park Triathlon. It was to become the third largest triathlon event in the UK, after London and Blenheim.

MyTriathlon Retail was initially launched as an answer to an issue that we came across often whilst organising our own event: many entrants simply didn’t want to commit to buying a wetsuit. Especially those who believed that their first triathlon would be their last!

Our sister company MyWetsuitHire now hires more swim wetsuits than any other hire company in the UK - providing 30 different wetsuits from the five most trusted triathlon brands – 2XU, Orca, Zone3, BlueSeventy and Huub.

With the popularity of triathlons growing year on year, many first timers have obviously, like us, caught the 'triathlon bug’ and have embarked on their own Ironman journeys: a goal that seems so inconceivable to us all when we first stepped out into the world of triathlon.

MyWetsuithire.co.uk

In the early days of MyTriathlon, our triathlon events were all open water, and we noticed that our entrants struggled to hire a wetsuit for the day at a sensible cost. We launched www.mywetsuithire.co.uk soon after, and have grown quickly to become the largest UK supplier of hired, quality wetsuits. We offer a selection of hired wetsuits from the most trusted brands - 2XU, Huub, Orca, Zone3 and BlueSeventy. 

MyTriathlon.co.uk

Launched in 2010, the team at My Triathlon have gained over 7 years of experience in the world of triathlon retail. We have adapted our business to suit our primary concern - the customer.

We offer: 

  • Personal Service - we can be contacted by phone, web chat or e-mail. 
  • Helpful Advice - our team of experts will help point you towards the correct size of wetsuit to suit your specific measurements, to make up for the sizing inconsistency between different brands. We have experience of 2XU, Huub, Zone3, Blue Seventy and Orca.
  • Available all-year-round - We stock products throughout the year and not just for the UK's short triathlon season. 
  • Quality Brands at Sensible Prices - We offer 10% discount on most current season products and greater discounts on previous seasons' stock.
  • Price Guarantee - If you see the same sized product on another web site we will match it. 

My Triathlon is dedicated to triathletes, runners, swimmers and cyclists of all abilities.

 

- Our exclusive Wetsuit Buy Back Scheme enables you to recoup up to 50% of the original price of your wetsuit. Ring us on

The Journey from Novice to Ironman:

One of our team completed his first triathlon swimming breaststroke without a wetsuit and riding a mountain bike. Two years later he completed his first Ironman in Germany.

We therefore appreciate the needs of novice triathletes and open water swimmers and the changing requirements of triathletes as they progress through the different race distances.

Whilst we are passionate about triathlon, our team also compete in running races, open water swims, enjoy the local gym and generally have fun!

We mostly stock products that we like and would buy ourselves, or items that are already part of our own training kit!
