What you need to know

West Bay is a unique sea side attraction and is the gateway to the Jurassic coast amongst the beautiful Dorset countryside.
It offers extensive play areas to keep adventurous families entertained for hours, and for nature lovers, runners and cyclists, acres of wide open spaces and paths.
With what we hope will be flat sea's, a scenic undulating bike course and testing runs this event is ideal for a late season open water Olympic ,sprint and Super-sprint triathlon.
(Undulating bike and run courses are route specific)

    You get what you pay for. A low entry fee so don't expect much. It's a good job a brought a swim cap with me! Did get a medal and some water at the end to be fair and would go back as I know what to expect now. Weather was rough that year (2017). Swell was massive with one small buoy to aim for. There was a boat and a few kayaks though to follow and was definitely an experience. Plenty of people not spotting signage and lack of enthusiastic marshalling (possibly because of the poor weather).
