EVENT OVERVIEW

Blackpool Sands Beach, Dartmouth, TQ6 0RG

Unfortunately the coronavirus pandemic has forced us to postpone the Dartmouth Triathlon. We plan to run it on the same Sunday in 2021.

The Dartmouth Triathlon (formerly the South Hams Triathlon) is back for a 6th year.

New for 2021 are our junior Swim-Runs/Aquathlons on Saturday afternoon. They include a sea swim & runs using the same course as the adults on Sunday.

This sprint distance triathlon event offers 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.

The race begins with a sea swim from Blackpool Sands which is naturally sheltered. Then it’s onto the bike for the rolling bike course. You finish with spectator-friendly runs close to the beach using a 1.25K circuit.  The run lanes are completely taped off so you’ll be able to run at least 2 abreast on virtually the whole course.

Super-Sprint Option
Our Super Sprint triathlon is ideal for novices or those who are daunted by a 750 metre sea swim. You get to enjoy the full bike course but a shorter run and a shorter swim.
