This multi-distance triathlon event is aimed at a wide range of abilities, and will be an enjoyable, challenging and friendly event. There is even a novice swim option for the Sprint Triathlon which completes a shorter loop. The event can be completed by individuals or as a relay team where each team member completes a single discipline.
The swim will start in waves from the beautiful sandy beach and takes place in the calm, clear waters over a fully marshalled single lap course.
You will then head out of Exmouth on the bike route, which will be an undulating single lap course. There will be a mixture of closed and open roads as you take in the beautiful surroundings.
The run leg takes place on the sea front promenade over an out and back loop. The flat course is perfect for a fast finish to your race and you can enjoy the stunning sea views throughout.
