The 10th Anniversary Dartmouth Triathlon. You start with a stunning swim in the clear waters of Blackpool Sands. Then it’s onto the bike for the stunning out and back ride via Slapton, which features Devon’s flattest road. You finish with an out & back run up the picturesque Blackpool Valley Road (used the first time we ran the event in 2015) following a stream gently rising up to the turn. By creating a second ‘bike drop’ transition on the other side of the A379 we are able to eliminate the road crossing from the race. For 2024 we’ve applied for a road closure on Blackpool Valley Road too.
New for 2023 was our well-received Standard Triathlon option which is two laps of the swim course, two laps of the bike course & two laps of the run course.
Numbers are strictly limited to 150 for the Standard & 150 for the Sprint so early registration is advised!
We also have our increasingly popular 750m, 1500m & 3K sea swims on Saturday evening. There’s a 25 percent discount for people swimming on Saturday afternoon and taking part in one of the triathlons on Sunday morning (automatically applied to your basket when you book them at the same time)
There’s also the rare chance to camp on the beach for a small additional charge.
The triathlon swim normally requires a wetsuit as the water temperature is likely to be below 14C. See our FAQs
