Wild Tri & Wild Tri Extreme routes

Wild Tri:

This is the perfect race for those who are looking for a challenging course, yet also new to the sport. It will provide the ideal opportunity to get a real flavour of wild sports. Further details can be found below:

9k Cycle: This stage includes 2.5km of off-road riding and gravel tracks, with the rest of the rout taking place on quiet country lanes or the traffic-free cycleway. This is ideal for enjoying off-road biking, but with no chance of getting lost.

6k Run: Once you've parked your bike, the run will take you right around the picturesque Meldon Reservoir.

Gorge Scramble: Now for a real taste of the wild and a chance to cool off. Athletes will have to scramble their way up through the gorge and its stunning natural pools.

1k Run: A quick dash back uphill to collect your bike.

6k Cycle: The final leg, were a well-earned shower and medal awaits you.

12.5k Run: This challenging route will take you across rocky terrain and will often be boggy underfoot. It also includes an ascent of one of Dartmoor's highest Tors.
