Sportiva Events has provided covid-19 safety information for this event.

Organiser's Description

This sprint distance triathlon event offers a stunning course starting and finishing at Blackpool Sands beach. It's a challenging course with some climbs, but also flat sections on both the run and the bike where you can really put the hammer down.

The race begins with a sea swim from Blackpool Sands, which is naturally sheltered. Then it's onto the bike for the rolling bike course. You finish with spectator-friendly runs close to the beach using a 1.25k circuit. We also have a relay option at this distance (team of 2 or 3).

Our Super Sprint option is ideal for novices, or those who are daunted by a 750 metre sea swim. You get to enjoy the full bike course but a shorter run and swim. And new for 2021 are our junior Aquathlons on Saturday afternoon.
