Sprint Triathlon
Route information
The Dawlish Triathlon takes advantage of Dawlish Warren's beautiful waters and stunning seaside views in this September triathlon.
Triathletes can choose from two events, the Sprint Triathlon or the Supersprint, the second aimed at giving newcomers to the sport a taste of the action and a reason to stick around.
The course will begin with a sea swim, where athletes will cut through the motion of the ocean before hopping on their bike for a sheltered circuit, and ending by running along the coastal path where they will be offered picturesque seaside views as they speed towards the finish line.
After an initial climb, the majority of the bike ride is flat or downhill, providing a fast course for athletes to push themselves to their absolute best. The run will along the sea wall, so road running shoes will be perfect for this event.
The distances for each event are as follows:
750m sea swim, 24km bike, 5km run.
300m sea swim, 16km bike, 5km run.

Did the Sprint Triathlon in 2021
This was my first triathlon (sprint) and the Dawlish Tri was a perfect way to get into the sport. Would definitely compete again next year.
Recent Questions
Connor Palmer
Is a tri suit enough for the swim or would you still recommend a wet suit more? Many thanks
Manon VT
It's a sea swim so the water won't be particularly warm - I'd definitely recommend a wetsuit, particularly if you're doing the sprint distance. For the super sprint, you might be able to get away with just a tri-suit to save time in transition!

Hi, will there be a children's event?
Stephy Dennis
Hi there. Unfortunately this year there will not be a children's race but event organiser's aim for 2020 is to introduce some children's events.

Do i have to wear a wetsuit for this?
Stephy Dennis
Hi there. You do not have to wear a wetsuit for this event but due to the swim being a sea swim it is advised to wear one! :)
