EVENT OVERVIEW

Torbay Velopark, Penwill Way, Paignton, TQ4 5JR

Torbay Triathlon (Junior & Senior ) for all ages and all abilities from 5+. This festival of triathlon will feature both junior races and adult races on the Sunday. The totally traffic-free triathlon is the perfect way for anyone to start in the sport, with a pool based swim, followed by a Velopark ride on smooth tarmac and a parkland run. There is also a category for relay teams.

The swim, in the newly refurbished 25m pool is followed by between one and 10 laps on the super-smooth tarmac of the Velopark. The race finishes with a one or two lap run (depending on your category) on a fast and flat parkland course.

NEW FOR 2020!  Improved Tristar 2 run course which is now one big (1.9K) lap of the field. Finish moved round the corner which will run more smoothly as finishers will no longer cross swimmers on their way from the pool.
