The Details

One of the biggest reasons for taking part in this event is that Weymouth and Portland, and the rest of the south coast, has the sunniest climate in the United Kingdom.

The race base for this Classic and Sprint triathlon is at the iconic National Sailing Academy, host to the 2012 Olympic sailing events who’s facilities are not to be rivalled.

The swim will take place in the crystal clear blue waters of a sheltered harbour surrounded by a large stone wall, Some 250,000 tonnes of Portland Stone was used in creating the 875m breakwater. The start and finish of the swim will be on a slipway, no sand or rocks to disrupt your run back to transition.

The transition is 50m from the swim exit so no long distance running required just yet.

The bike route will take you on a journey around the Isle of Portland, once for the Sprint  and three loops for the Classic.

After the bike you will head back to race HQ and commence your flat run along the shoreline of Hamm Beach, well know for its world record breaking speed week with windsurfers all over the globe and along on to the Rodwell trail, the old railway line that linked Weymouth to Portland and is now a very scenic, traffic free walk.

The race will finish back at the Sailing Academy where you will be rewarded like heroes and lavish gifts bestowed upon you.

On line entries will close on 11th June 2017 or before if full.
