Sunday 8th July 2018 - 07:30am Registration Opens

This year we have returned to the two race format with two start times.


Currently the race will start by the Lifeguard hut on the seafront along Marine Parade. The transition will be situated on the Tankerton Slopes. The race will begin with the 200 or 400m sea swim, finishing near to the Lifeguard hut. There is then a ramp up to the Tankerton Slopes where the transition will be. The run will then start along Marine Parade, around Long Rock, back along the sea front and finally up to finish back on the Tankerton Slopes.

Wet Suit Rules...

For those who are unfamiliar with Triathlon England rules, in the event the water temperature is below 14C then wet suits are required to race if you are to be covered by the day licence. Last year the water temperature was 17C and it hasn't been below 16C for a long time. For those who are interested in hiring a suit then if you search wet suit hire on a web search engine then plenty of options should appear. We are not partnered with any of these companies, here are a few sites:,,
