Bridport Triathlon routes
Super sprint (Try a tri)
The Super sprint distance race will consist of a 200 m pool swim, a 20 km bike, and just under 3 km run (2.92 km)
200 metres in the swimming pool will consist of 8 lengths of the 25 metre pool.
The bike section leaves the leisure centre and heads through skilling and out through Salway ash , we pass through Netherbury before heading back to bridport, with the countryside for company and Dorset's beautiful villages to cycle through, its not a testing a ride.
The run is just under 3 km (2.92km) and will head up into Bridport before heading back to the leisure centre through the surrounding football pitches and parks.
The Sprint Distance race will consist of a 400 m pool swim, a 25 km bike, and a 4.65 km run.
The bike section leaves the leisure centre and heads out the area on a flat and fast course into some of Dorset's most beautiful and quiet villages. The route is an out and back, and is a quick bike leg, it has a few tests on the out portion but coming back is all down hill.
The run is to west bay and 2.5 km back on a different route, there are a couple of spots where you run on the same bit twice, just near the start and end of the run.
The Duathlon event will consist of just under a 3 km run, a 25 km bike, and a 4.65 km run
The duathlon will start just after the first wave of swimmers has started at 0800 and will consist of
Run- Your first run will leave the leisure centre and is a relatively simple loop around the parks adjacent to the Bridport football club, its a nice run that follows the river Brit and should be either traffic free or very light on a May Sunday morning.
Bike- The bike section leaves the leisure centre and heads out the area on a flat and fast course into some of Dorset's most beautiful and quiet villages. The route is an out and back, and is a quick bike leg, it has a few tests on the out portion but coming back is all down hill, this course is fast and flying and again takes place on very traffic light roads.
Run- Your second run will head from the leisure centre on a different route to the first run and is to West Bay along the footpaths at west bay we do a small loop and head back to Transition following the old railway line, its not concrete but nor is it a difficult surface to run on, there is a small incline as the path leads up to Bridport, but after this its pretty much all down hill to the finish.
The transition area is located just outside the leisure centre pool doors, its 10 metres from the changing rooms, and we would ask that after you have racked your bike you park in the Football club car park, this will ensure enough space for the leisure centre to stay open during the event (Its free to park).
