The Brims Cup

This is the highlight of the Multi sport year where each Cadet Force competes in a Mixed Relay against each other for The Brims Cup. The event is held at Hummersknott School, Darlington.

What is Mixed Relay?

Triathlon Mixed Relay format has brought racing at its most thrilling, where the individual sport combines with pure team spirit. Athletes must complete a super-sprint triathlon - 100m swim, 2.2km bike ride and 1km run - before tagging off to a teammate, always in the order female-male-female-male. Among the most exciting aspects of these races for spectators is the athletes’ dramatic sprint and dive after being tagged by their teammate, as well as the intensity and speed from start to finish, the tight back-and-forth lead changes and team pride that this innovative racing format elicits.

In the Cadet version there is the added excitement of each team compromising of a member from the Youth, Junior and adult age groups.
