Event summary
Here are the distances available for Bournemouth International Triathlon
Route information
Bournemouth International Triathlon is located on the west side of Bournemouth Pier. Both sprint and standard distance swims start on the award-winning blue flag beach just under the zig zag of West Cliff Gardens before heading out of Bournemouth on a fast bike course towards the market town of Ringwood on the edge of The New Forest. You then finish by running along the promenade to finish back on the sand.

What will transitions look like at the Bournemouth International Triathlon?
Big and spacious! Usually bikes are racked 4 each side to a rack but now it will be two bikes each side. Make sure you have your bike stickers on, wristband on and helmet on a done up before entering transition. The marshal will check from a distance. This will speed up the queue.

Did the race in 2021
Just a few things I would like to point out, the swim was beautiful and the bike and run course were lovely. The racing conditions and elements of the race were amazing.This brings me on to a couple of negative points, hopefully they may help others in the future.Firstly, the toilet situation, there was a lot of concerned faces out there when we found out no toilets were available. Due to this I experienced one of my most uncomfortable races to date. I understand the council were responsible, but a contingency plan of a few portaloos wouldn’t have gone a miss.Secondly, the lack of race briefing in the morning, I understand there was information on the website but when working shifts for the ambulance service running up to race day you don’t really have that much free time.I was venturing over to the water to warm up at 06:55 (as my start time wasn’t until 07:07) and I noticed people already running into the water and starting. I only knew which way to swim because I saw others already out there. So, maybe (like every other triathlon I’ve done) 5-10 mins prior to the race a gathering and quick going over of rules would be ideal (especially any first time races it might help with any last minute nerves and to put their minds at ease).Finally, marshals out on the course we’re far to preoccupied with being on their phones. The only one I passed not on their phone was a lady at the bottom of the hill on the run course.The only reason the lady got my number when I couldn’t stop in time at a red light (I stopped just past the line) was because I shouted sorry to her. This made her look up from her phone for a brief second, take my number and look straight back down at her phone.I hope this points are read and considered for future races.
