With sheltered blue flag water for the Swim, an amazing Bike course and a Run taking in parts of the award-winning beach - this is the perfect event for a first timer.

Q: Do I have to use a racing bike for this event?

We do however provide a restricted transition area. You will be issued with a bike number in your goody bag which you must attach to your bike prior to racking it. You can rack your bike in any location, but please ensure that you keep your area neat and tidy to limit the disruption to other athletes. Your bib number and bike number must be shown when collecting your bike at the end of the race.

Q: Can I collect my bike as soon as I have finished?
A: To be fair to all athletes it will only be possible to collect your bike once all the athletes are in off the bike course.

Q: What do I do if I fail to finish in the event?
A: You MUST report to a member of the finish line team so that we know that you are safe and accounted for. Also it is important that we receive you timing chip back.
