The inaugural Bridport triathlon will be a pool based Triathlon hosted at Bridport leisure centre and will consist of 3 events, we have tried to think about all levels of entry, so if you have never entered a triathlon before and want to have a go, the super-sprint (try a tri) is an option, if you have done triathlons before or if you think you have the fitness to complete a slightly tougher triathlon the the sprint is your option, Don't like swimming then the Duathlon is your option.
And if you dont want to do all three portions of the triathlon then round up some friends and have a go at the team event (One person to do each element, so 3 different people in total).
Super sprint (Try a tri)
The Super sprint distance race will consist of a 200 m pool swim, a 20 km bike, and just under 3 km run (2.92 km)
200 metres in the swimming pool will consist of 8 lengths of the 25 metre pool.
The bike section leaves the leisure centre and heads through skilling and out through Salway ash , we pass through Netherbury before heading back to bridport, with the countryside for company and Dorset's beautiful villages to cycle through, its not a testing a ride.
The run is just under 3 km (2.92km) and will head up into Bridport before heading back to the leisure centre through the surrounding football pitches and parks.
The transition area is located just outside the leisure centre pool doors, its 10 metres from the changing rooms, and we would ask that after you have racked your bike you park in the Football club car park, this will ensure enough space for the leisure centre to stay open during the event (Its free to park).
There are lockers for your clothing and showers are available after the event.
Registration will take place on the morning of the event, nothing will be sent in the post.
At registration you will receive everything you need for the race.
Registration and transition will open at 06:30 and close at 07:45
