South Hams Triathlon Sprint Triathlon (Blackpool Sands) 2018
Sun 10 June 2018, 08:00 – 11:00 BST
Our sprint triathlon returns to a stunning course starting and finishing at Blackpool Sands beach. It's a challenging course with some climbs but also flat sections on both the run and the bike where you can really put the hammer down.
750 metre swim - Blackpool Sands is naturally sheltered. The swim will start at the West end of the beach then swim diagonally across the bay for 375 metres before exiting to run up the beach and into T1.
20.3 km bike - The bike leg starts with a tough climb up towards Strete. But you're rewarded with a great view at the top and a fast down hill. Then it's time to get down on the tri bars on Devon's flattest stretch of road along Slapton beach and past Slapton Ley before turning right for the gentle climb up to Stokenham roundabout where you turn and retrace.
5km run - Great new run introduced in 2017.
