On 9 July 2017 St Swithun's hosted Trytri, a triathlon event for adults and children.

Next year's triathlon will be held on Saturday 14 July 2018. You can sign up to take part here: http://trytri.co.uk/events/st-swithuns-triathlon.aspx.
The inaugural St Swithun's triathlon was a great success with nearly 450 triathletes signed up to race. We were lucky to have fantastic weather shining on the picturesque grounds at St Swithun's and its rural surroundings for the event. - Nikki Rees, MD of Rees Leisure (TryTri Events)
