Races summary
Here's what races are available for Wild Tri & Wild Tri Extreme
Route information
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.
Wild Tri Extreme:
Now for a real taste of the Devon Experience and a truly formidable route. With nearly 50% of the biking off-road, this terrain is generally much more wild than the Wild Tri route.
26k Cycle: The first stage of the event sees you take on a considerable cycle around the edge of Meldon Reservoir with some serious climbs and downhills throughout.
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.
**
Gorge Scramble:** Time for a much needed cool-down and some wild scrambling through the gorge.
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.
