A well organised event in a great location. My only reservation is the large number of traffic lights on the bike course. It's very frustrating to work your socks off only to then be held up at a set of lights for a minute or more.… read more

Route description
Route description

The English Riviera Triathlon is an endurance festival you will not want to miss this summer.

All events will begin with a fantastic sea swim in the warm and sheltered waters of Goodrington Sands. After slicing through the waves, those doing the triathlon will hop on their bikes and complete the challenging loop around the Torbay area.

For those challenging themselves to the triathlon, know that it is not for the faint hearted, as the bike course poses some challenging climbs that are sure to get the legs and lungs burning.

The bike course ends in a zooming descent towards the run course, which will take competitors along a stunning but tough off-road coastal journey, fit with steep hills and steps to challenge you all the way through the finish line and that incredible sense of achievement.

Visit https://www.letsdothis.com/gb/e/english-riviera-swim-188917 to enter the sea swims taking place the same day.

Kit List

  • Goggles
  • Bike - time trial or triathlon bikes will be quickest but because of the hilly route, a road bike will be almost as quick. Mountain bikes are also allowed
  • Helmet
  • Trail shoes for the run
  • Change of clothes for after the event

Spectators will be permitted at the event, and unlike most triathlons, spectators will be able to watch most of the swim along the promenade.
