English Riviera Triathlon

Goodrington Sands Beach, Paignton, Devon
Sportiva Events has provided covid-19 safety information for this event.

Organiser's Description

The English Riviera Triathlon, formerly the Geopark Park Triathlon, starts with a great sea swim in the warm waters of Goodrington Sands. Then it's onto the bike for a challenging loop around the Torbay area, and finally a stunning off-road coast run over towards Brixham.

Be warned, it's a tough course. The first 6 miles of the bike leg is rolling, but then you hit Parliament hill which averages at 11% and another climb before the super fast descent to the finish (but if you're doing the standard distance you have to do it all over again!). The run course is also tough, with some steep hills and steps to contend with.

As part of this event, you have the chance to do both distances as a relay, or as an Aquathlon - without the bike leg.
