Welcome to the Salcombe Sprint Triathlon…one of the first triathlons to take place from this iconic seaside town. This short event will put your endurance to the test as you run, swim, and cycle through local villages of Salcombe, South Milton and Galmpton.
Starting from North Sands for a 700m swim in the bay, competitors will then head out on the bike course which has numerous undulations through some stunning South Hams countryside.
Be ready for the cheeky switch back climb up Sand Hills Rd along the main road past Marlborough taking a left towards South Milton and along the quiet country lanes towards to sea.Once you're past South Milton Sands there is a steep assault on the hill upto Galmpton and a nice finish along the escarpoment from Marlborough to North Sands.
The run aspect is a trail type route into the valley behind north sands with a gentle ascent to Lower Collaton, and back down a winding track back to North Sands.
