Route information
The Dartmouth Triathlon returns for its 10th Anniversary race to the turquoise waters and golden shingle of beautiful Blackpool Sands and the surrounding countryside. With Standard, Sprint and Aquabike races on offer, there's something for everyone at this jam-packed event.
All of the races begin with a plunge into the gentle currents and clear water of Blackpool Sands' bay.
After this, competitors will take on a bike section, which takes you on an out-and-back ride through Slapton, finishing back on the beach. This route features Devon's flattest road for an easy ride and is mostly well-paved surfaces.
Finally, the triathlon concludes with an out-and-back run along Blackpool Valley Road, which offers scenic views of the surrounding countryside.
Looking for more? The Triathlon includes a series of 750m, 1,500m and 3,000 sea swimsExternalLink on Saturday evening before the main event.

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 race, 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?
