Event summary
Here are the distances available for Mersea Island Sprint & Olympic Triathlon
Route information
Sprint Course:
750m Swim:
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.
20KM Cycle:
Entrants will be led off the island and over the causeway before cycling around the adjacent village of Peldon.
5KM Run:
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.
Olympic Course:
1.5KM Swim:
**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.
40KM Cycle:
Entrants will complete the same route as the sprint discipline, before then completing a full lap around the reservoir.
10KM Run:
The run will follow a similar pattern of 50% beach and 50% road, in true Mersea Island Triathlon fashion.
