FAQ
What are the routes for the Long Swim?
The long swim will be laps. There will be an Aussie exit on each lap. This means you will swim to the shore line, be able to take a drink and run back into the water for your next lap. We do not publish the route on the website as it is always subject to change (weather conditions, number of entrants, etc) The route will be clearly marked by buoys and plenty of kayakers guiding you.… read more

Route description
Route description

The Original Swanage Triathlon Festival is set in the seaside town of Swanage which resides in an area of outstanding beauty know as The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset.

The swim routes take place in open water in Swanage Bay. Be ready to try and spot some wildlife through the clear water.

The bike routes are not for the faint-hearted. Taking riders up tough climbs, theres a great descent on Kingston Hill to make the downs will worth the ups.

The run heads North out of Swanage Town and up onto Ballard Down Ridge, an area of chalk downland on the Purbeck Hills. The routes are challenging but the views are worth it.
