Route description

The Bridport triathlon is a pool based Triathlon aimed at all levels of fitness and ability, the shorter distance option makes this event perfect for someone thats taking part in their first event or if you have entered triathlons before and are looking to improve on your sprint distance ability.

This is the first year for the Bridport triathlon and we are running the event to encourage people to take on the challenge of this great sport. You can enter the event as an individual and complete all three disciplines over the Sprint or shorter distance Super sprint, or as a relay team with friends or colleagues.(One person to do each element, so 3 different people in total).
And if you dont fancy swimming enter the Duathlon for an equally testing challenge.


The swim

200m (Super-sprint) / 400m (Sprint) To start the event you need to swim either 8 or 16 lengths of the heated swimming pool (any stroke is fine) and then you make your way to the transition area and prepare for the bike ride.

The bike

19km (Super-sprint) / 25km (Sprint and Duathlon) After completing the swim you will then jump on your bike for 19K or 25K around the local country lanes. The route is hilly in places so please pace yourselves accordingly.

The Run

3km (Super-sprint and duathlon run 1) / 5km (Sprint and duathlon run 2) Once the bike has been completed you then return to transition for the run, this is 3k/5K around the surrounding paths and includes some off road sections.(Not mud, just linking paths)
