The event takes place on Sunday 22nd July 2018 in the beautiful Promenade Park and Hythe Quay in Maldon, Essex, England. The rooftops of Maldon and the large sailing barges offer the perfect and unique backdrop for a triathlon.

Starting with an Open Water Swim in the River Blackwater, competitors then move on to the Cycle on the quiet and scenic roads of the Dengie Peninsula. Finally a lapped Run around the Prom with spectators, locals and visitors creating a great atmosphere.

This triathlon offers numerous opportunities for spectators to watch and cheer on the triathletes and is perfect for first time competitors or seasoned pros alike. This is a fun, energetic event with competitors returning yearly to enjoy the occasion.

There are two distances to choose from; Sprint Distance & Olympic Distance:

Sprint: 750m Swim / 28km Cycle / 5km Run

Olympic: 1.5km Swim / 45km Cycle / 10km Run

  • Did the Olympic in 2019

    Due to roadworks bike course included a walk section along gravel path, had I known before booking I would not have entered. Saw a number of punctures after that part probably as a result, luckily I wasn't one of them. Swimming in shallow water with mud wasn't great either, not sure why the swim course can't go the other way into deeper water? Run route was good although i clocked it as short of the 10k and public support was great here.

    Did the Sprint in 2017

    A great event in my favourite place of the UK. It was my first triathlon, and I received lots of communication from Dengie Events in the lead up to the event so I knew what to expect. There was buzzing atmosphere both before and after the race, and I got an amazing sports massage after the race (thanks, Charlie!). The sun came out about 3km into the ride which was fast, flat and fabulous. Will definitely be back again next year to take on the Olympic distance!
