One of the more physically demanding competitions, a triathlon is a multi-discipline endurance race of back-to-back swimming, cycling and running. Distances range from the super-sprint (400m swim, 20K bike, 5K run) to the toughest Ironman distance of 3.86K swim, 180K bike and marathon run. Triathlons can take place in varied locations across the world, from city to desert, pool to open water, track to cross-country.

The perfect kit for a triathlon can transition from swim to bike to run with ease. Each discipline requires something slightly different â€“ from streamlined suits for swimming, padded shorts for cycling and bust support for running. A dedicatedtriathlon suit can meet your needs across all three legs.
Anti-fog goggles ensure good visibility, enabling you to keep your eyes on the buoys guiding you to the finish line.
Sweaty Betty is a silver lining story. Faced with redundancy, Sweaty Betty’s founder Tamara wanted to turn her luck around and embrace the opportunity to make a change for the better. So she thought about the things she loved – fitness, adventure, fashion
– and how she could run a business that would appeal to all her passions. “Imagine if there was a community for women like me who want to lead an active life without compromising on style,” said Tamara. “My vision is to dress a woman, and at the same time empower her. I want to create workout wear that’ s more than something to sweat in, it’ s a tool for transformation.”
In 1998, Tamara took the first step and opened the original Sweaty Betty boutique in Notting Hill. Within the stunning listed venue sat the most beautiful and technical in specially–designed workout wear for run, ski, yoga, swim and every discipline for the British fitness enthusiast.
Tamara’s dream has become an inspirational reality. Sweaty Betty has expanded into an omnichannel retailer selling premium women’s activewear, designed in–house, across worldwide boutiques and an award–winning global website. From its humble origins, Sweaty Betty has evolved into a global fit fashion powerhouse. With unmistakable British style, we enable and empower every woman to push boundaries within her favourite workouts and beyond.
