This is 'The World's Toughest Triathlon' (as voted for by 220 Triathlon in 2017) but it is renowned for it's low-key and friendly vibe. Every athlete, whether it's your first triathlon or 21st, will feel the massive support from not only the event crew, but the other competitors too. The challenging terrain and breathtaking scenery creates an awesome experience that will stay with you long after the aches and blisters have gone!

    Did the Full Brutal in 2019

    Low key, friendly atmosphere in some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. A tough but doable course coupled with the encouraging and awesome crew makes this an event you don't want to miss
