Route information
  • Swim 500m
  • Bike 20km
  • Run 5km
Swim
There is a strict 25 minute cut-off for the swim proportion of the race, as anyone in the water longer than this time is likely to feel the effects of the sea. Active Life Ltd. reserve the right to direct anyone still in the water after this time for their own safety.
To prepare for the swim it is recommended to practice swimming at a 750m distance (though the swim length on the day is 500m).
Bike
This relatively flat route is mapped across open roads, both coastal and suburban, bending around beautiful green fields. The 20k course takes a total ascent of 139m.
This single loop route has been updated in response to the feedback of previous participants.

Great sunrise on your way to check in, really marked sea swim, great cycle course on open roads, a few junctions and roundabouts, beautiful run.

Just a warning. I had my wet suit stolen from transition. Emailed the organisers to report it and heard nothing. Not even an acknowledgment.

Did the Triathlon in 2018
Great event in Whitstable. The sea swim is always a bit of a challenge but the bike route can be fast and so is the run, at the exception of the final hill.

Did the Triathlon in 2017
Bike course is crap, along a dual carriage way and loop round housing estate when when compared to other options they could have chosen around whitstable (Canterbury loop or Graveny Dargate area).55pound or 60 late is very expensive for a Sprint Tri.
