The Islander – Middle Distance Triathlon route
It is almost as if Mersea Island was created for this event. The run measures 21km, exactly the circumference of the island. There is stunning scenery all the way round, mixed terrain and no lap run.
The swim begins off the beach and is held at slack tide.
The cycle route takes competitors off The Island and along scenic Essex country lanes. Competitors will then head around Abberton Reservoir before turning back to the transition to begin the final leg.
This is a flat triathlon but the terrain is a mixture of road, sand and seawall making it a unique but challenging course.
