Organiser's Description

The beautiful seaside town of Eastbourne welcomes athletes back for the Eastbourne Triathlon on the 12th June 2022. The 2022 event will once again feature a standard distance race alongside the established sprint distance event. Athletes of all abilities and experience, from novice to elite, can sign up to take on the challenge. Starting from the lifeguard’s beach, triathletes will take on an iconic route, swimming against the backdrop of the historic Eastbourne pier, cycling the roads through the South Downs National Park via Beachy Head and running on the iconic promenade to Holywell, before finishing on the Western Lawns.

The sprint distance event is ideal for novice triathletes, consisting of a 750m swim, 18.3km cycle and a 5km run. The standard distance race is a 1,500m swim, followed by a challenging 36.6km cycle and a 10km run. There are also relay and aquathon (swim/run) options for both distances.

Parking

There is no specific parking location for the event, but there is plenty of on-street parking on the roads in the area, where parking is free of charge. You may need to walk around 1km so plan to arrive early to give yourself time to find a parking space and walk from your car to the race venue at the Western Lawns.
Please note, parking is available on the main seafront road (King Edward’s Parade) however this road forms part of the bike route so we would ask that you only park there if you intend to leave after 11:30am.
