Perfect for first-timers and seasoned triathletes alike, Southend Triathlon features a uniquely flat course on closed roads for undisturbed racing and a fast finish time. Racers start with a 750m swim in the Thames Estuary, followed by a 20km bike along the closed roads of the seafront promenade while being cheered on by thousands of supporters, and finishing with a quick 5k run around the park used for the local Parkrun. This is an event not to be missed as it features an expo on the day with expert advice from running professionals, food, drink, music, and stalls from local sports businesses.
