Tetrathlon is a very personal goal sport, where each time you compete you can improve your score in each phase, but also be part of a team of similar aged members.  The scoring for shooting is out of 1000, running a set distance you get points for your time, swimming for a set time you get points for the distance you swim and riding you get points for going clear, and it also involves getting on and off and opening a gate/slip rail.


Ride – This phase of competition provides an opportunity for the rider and mount to demonstrate equestrian skills over a cross country course to include opening a gate and dismounting to negotiate a slip rail. (A small course of jumps – usually fenced in – is set up for the under 8’s)

Run – The Run phase of competition challenges each competitor’s physical stamina and endurance. The course is designed over cross-country terrain covering a set distance.

Shoot – The shoot phase of competition tests a competitor’s skill with a total of ten shots at a target.

Swim – The swimming phase of competition allows competitors to demonstrate their swimming skills for a set time, with points given for every metre they swim. Weaker swimmers are catered for with outside lanes and swim aids often allowed to encourage younger children.
