About the Event

Celebrating its fifth edition in 2019, the Kyoto Tamba triathlon welcomes future and veteran triathletes to one of Japan’s most sought-after destinations. Boasting a river swim, a fast bike course through rice paddies, and a flat riverside run, it’s perfect for a PR. Taking place in August, athletes confident in the heat and humidity of summer in Japan will shine in this late summer race.

With both an Olympic Distance (Standard) and Super Sprint, it’s a race geared for triathletes of all levels and competitiveness. Space is limited; unfortunately, Samurai Sports is not accepting registrations for the draft-legal Sprint distance this year.

Located just outside of Kyoto, Nantan is a serene getaway with rich natural and scenic heritage. With two large rivers flowing through the city and a mountainous backdrop, Nantan is a reflection of tremendous diversity in a small territory. Don’t forget to treat yourself to countryside cuisine both before and after the race - specialties include soba and venison. Come for the race, stay for the weekend!
