Route information
To kick-off the day, racers will swim from Blackpool Sands, a sheltered inlet that makes for a stunning open-water swim. Once you are out of the water there's a short run up the beach through transition and onto the bikes. The bike route includes a few undulating hills but nothing too strenuous.
After-which it's off the bikes and onto your feet with four laps making up a 5k run (2 laps for the Supersprint).
If you aren't as confident or you are just starting out then there is the option to do the Super Sprint, which reduces the run and swim portions.

Is the event affiliated with British Triathlon and do I need a day membership?
All Sportiva triathlons are British Triathlon affiliated and listed on britishtriathlon.org/. If you do not have annual membership you will need to buy a day membership to take part (£4 in advance, £5 on the day or £1 if you are aged under 20 on 31st December of the year of competition. The exception is the GO TRI /Beginners events which do not require a day membership. To keep entry costs down the Duathlons are not British Triathlon affiliated which means you do not need to purchase a day license to take part. However we do run the duathlons under British Triathlon rules.
I am a first time triathlete, which race should I do at the Dartmouth Triathlon?
While you certainly have the option to sign up for a more difficult option, the Supersprint is a very good place to start out. It will give you a taste of open water swimming and bike racing, but ensures you do not go too far out of your comfort zone.
Will there be parking at the Dartmouth Triathlon?
Yes, there will be parking near the venue but please make sure you arrive early enough to find a spot and get organised.
Can I bring my dog to the Dartmouth Triathlon?
Unfortunately dogs are not permitted at the event.
This event currently has no reviews, why not be the first? You could help someone find their perfect event.
