West Bay Triathlon

Next Race: 06/09/2020

West Bay is a unique sea side attraction and is the gateway to the Jurassic coast amongst the beautiful Dorset countryside.
It offers extensive play areas to keep adventurous families entertained for hours, and for nature lovers, runners and cyclists, acres of wide open spaces and paths.
With what we hope will be flat sea's, a scenic undulating bike course and testing runs this event is ideal for a late season open water Olympic ,Sprint and Super-sprint triathlon.
(Undulating bike and run courses are route specific, i.e super sprint bike route is relatively flat)

With a Duathlon and Swim/Run to accompany the triathlons, there is a choice for everyone.
