As a result of the Royal Commonwealth Pool (RCP) refurbishment together with the decision by the previous organizers to withdraw from the event during the closure, Edinburgh Racing has stepped forward to continue the event this year.

The event will run from Moray House in Holyrood Road at the University's 25m 6 lane teaching pool. The transition area will be across the street in the university car park on St Johns Street.

This years event will also include the first ever Great Pyjamas Caper in aid of The New Pyjamas Campaign raising funding for the new Sick Kids hospital to be built in Edinburgh.

Get into your pyjamas on New Years day. For the first time children of any age, even those in pushchairs! will have a chance to run 1km of the New Years Day Triathlon course in the Great Pyjamas Caper.
