The Namibian Triathlon Federation


We aim to attract as many athletes to our events.

Not only triathlon enthusiast, but Swimmers, Cyclists and Runners all-alike. 

We showcase our sport and create awareness of the array of multi-sport practiced in our beautiful country.

Our objective is to function as the National Federation for triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon and related other multi-sports in Namibia, and to develop, grow and represent Namibia on a continental and international level.

“Those who try the impossible are the ones who achieve the incredible.”

Upcoming events

Age Groupers

any Engage in three sports with just one athlete!

Why limit yourself to one sport when you can participate in three simultaneously? The triathlon is a thrilling multi-disciplinary sport that entails a continuous race covering various distances in swimming, transitioning to biking, and concluding with a run to the finish line.

Triathlon welcomes participants of all ages, genders, and skill levels. Whether you’re a novice or a lifelong competitor, there’s no sport quite like triathlon!

Status of Competition

Triathletes fall into two distinct categories:

  1.  Elite: These are professional triathletes who participate in international-level competitions.
  2.  Age-Group: Non-professional triathletes who are categorized based on age. The Age-Group system enables competitors to race against others within the same age group (within a ten-year range) and gender. Competing as an Age-Grouper also grants you the title of World Triathlete.
