Mersea Island Sprint & Olympic Triathlon routes
Start with a dive/jump off the floating pontoon jetty, situated in the heart of the fishing and sailing waterfront. Competitors then swim 750m along the coast through the moorings to the first beach, Shingle Point, behind the iconic houseboats.
Entrants will be led off the island and over the causeway before cycling around the adjacent village of Peldon.
The Run has the competitors on roads for the first half before exiting onto the beach for the final 2.5km straight to the finish at Shingle Point, where you can expect to see spectators cheering you on across the line. The run will consist of 50% beach and 50% road.
Again, competitors will kick-off from the beach, making it ideal for supporters to see. They will take in similar sites to the sprint, but for double the distance.
Entrants will complete the same route as the sprint discipline, before then completing a full lap around the reservoir.
The run will follow a similar pattern of 50% beach and 50% road, in true Mersea Island Triathlon fashion.
