The swim starts with a dive/jump off the floating pontoon jetty, situated in the heart of the fishing and sailing waterfront. Competitors then swim 750m along the coast through the moorings to the first beach, Shingle Point, behind the iconic houseboats. The Cycle leads competitors around the country roads of West Mersea. The Run has the competitors on roads for the first half before exiting onto the beach for the final 2.5km straight to the finish at Shingle Point. There, spectators gather to cheer each competitor back across the line.

It has become a tradition for each competitor to remain at the finish to cheer each and every participant home.

Mersea Island Sprint Triathlon

This is a common distance for a Duathlon and is a very popular event, it eliminates the Swim but still has three components Run, Cycle, Run.
The distance is an ideal challenge for beginners looking at getting into a multipart race. It is also a great event to add to the calendar for the seasoned triathletes and duathletes.
Our Spring and Autumn Duathlons are held at Cudmore Grove Country Park at the East of the Island. The park provides competitors with a variety of terrain to run on, including meadow paths, woodland trials and open beach.
Cudmore Grove is famous for its migrating wildlife and its stunning eroding cliffs. Competitors will tackle the country parks mix terrain and see all of its beauty. The Cycle takes place on the long quiet country roads of East Mersea.
This is a fantastic venue for the whole family (including the dogs) to spectate and explore!
