Swanage Triathlon Festival
5 July 2020
The Swanage Triathlon Festival is set in the seaside town of Swanage which resides in an area of outstanding beauty know as The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset.
The first triathlon was hosted here way back in 1986. The Transition area overlooks Swanage Bay with amazing views across the Purbecks towards Old Harry Rocks, the eastern gateway to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The event is known for its stunning views. The bike course has a mix of steady climbs with some of the steepest descents in Dorset. The run course is a tough trail climb up Ballard Down towards Old Harry Rocks. The reward is the awesome views at the top!
There will be an Aquathlon of 750m sea swim and onto the 5km run. Later in the morning, we have a 2.5km or a 5km long swim.
