Route information
There are four triathlon distances on offer: super sprint, sprint, standard and the brand new Suffolk 70.3 middle distance.
Suffolk 70.3
The final course for the brand new Suffolk 70.3 is being finalised but you can expect the following:
The swim will be an extended version of the standard swim, the bike will have the same start and finish as the standard route, but there will be 3 laps of a loop between Kirton, Newbourne, Waldringfield, and Brightwell. The run will involve a lap course extending from the promenade down towards Landguard Fort.
Standard
Assuming weather and tide conditions allow then the Standard swim will be in the sea, swimming south-west along the beach towards Felixstowe Pier. Competitors will walk from the Transition area along the promenade before entering the water for a water start at either the Standard or Sprint start points.
The Standard Swim will begin at the near Cobbolds Point, approximately 1500m north-east of the pier.
The Standard Bike Route is a 41 km route that takes you from the seafront out via Felixstowe Docks and through Trimley St Martin before crossing the A14 and doing a loop through Kirton, Newbourne and Brightwell. Crossing back over the A14, and returning through Trimley St Martin the route then takes you down to Felixstowe Ferry where you will do a U turn and return back along the seafront road before returning to Transition.
The Standard Run will be 10km, and this will comprise two loops of the Sprint course out and back along the promenade, before exiting towards the finish in Sea Rd at the end of the second lap.
Sprint
Assuming weather and tide conditions allow then the Standard and Sprint swims (royal blue) will be in the sea, swimming south-west along the beach towards Felixstowe Pier.
The Sprint Swim will start on the beach about 100m north-east of the Spa Pavilion.
The Sprint & Super Sprint routes are 20.5km long and follows the same route as the Standard route but competitors will turn back at the roundabout at the northern end of Trimley High St roundabout and head back through Trimley St Martin and onwards as described above.
The Sprint Run will be 5km long and initially head north along the promenade for 1km before turning south and joining up with the Super Sprint course and following this to the finish.
Super Sprint
For Super Sprint competitors the swim will be pool based, comprising 12 lengths of the Leisure Centre Pool which you will swim across as you lap up and down.
The Sprint & Super Sprint routes are 20.5km long and follows the same route as the Standard route but competitors will turn back at the roundabout at the northern end of Trimley High St roundabout and head back through Trimley St Martin and onwards as described above.
The Super Sprint run will be 3km long and head south along the promenade to the Standard Swim Start where runners will turn and head back before crossing over on the finish straight.
