The Triathlon Industry Association (TIA) is once again looking to analyse the commercial impact of triathlon in the UK. This is our fourth year of conducting a major athlete survey, and we are now in the process of analysing the impact of triathlon in 2015.

Alongside a full review of event data and a series of trade interviews undertaken by specialist research firm MultiSport Research, TIA is again conducting a major survey of UK triathletes. This survey is now live.


The survey should take 10-20 minutes, depending on responses. (Certain questions are similar to previous surveys to help with year-on-year comparisons.)

As a way of saying thank you, we have a number of prizes up for grabs. As a starter, we have 104 individual prizes generously put forward by TIA member companies. The survey prize pot is currently valued at over £7,000 and is growing every day! The current list of prizes can be found below; and this will be updated in the coming days/weeks:
