Weekend Warrior


According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of a Weekend Warrior is ‘a person who does a particular activity (such as sport) only on the weekends’.

However, the London Triathlon meaning is somewhat different…

‘A person of great ambition, not satisfied with the achievement of taking part in the challenge of one triathlon but wanting to push their body to the limit and complete as many triathlons as they possibly can, on one weekend’.


Weekend Warrior, London resident Shaun Wood said of the challenge:

“The camaraderie and friendship of the Weekend Warriors really helped me to get through those tough moments”.

When asked what was tougher, the Weekend Warrior or IRONMAN, Shaun immediately replied “Weekend Warrior – 100%”.
