Minehead Triathlon

Sunday 11th October 2020 09:30 am

Location: The Adventure Centre, Minehead
Duration: 8 hours
Description: Channel Events are super excited to be bringing you the Minehead Triathlon for the third year running. New for 2020 is the introduction of the Olympic distance alongside the popular sprint distance. After events in 2014, 2015 and 2016 delivered by Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership the Minehead Triathlon didn’t run in 2017. Taken on by Channel Events in 2018 the event was huge success and we are keen to continue to grow this event as an amazing season finale in the British Triathlon calendar going forward. Previously a sprint triathlon with a 400m pool swim, 20km bike route and a flat seafront 5km run, we at Channel Events have grasped this opportunity to change things up a little. From 2018 the event now utilises its coastal location by introducing mass start open water sea swims in the shadows of North Hill but within the safety of the bay. The bike route will remain unchanged due to its fast undulating character, this bike route is an out and back towards the village of Porlock on stunning roads flanked by the high moorland terrain of Exmoor National Park. The views are breathtaking. Finally, you’ll take on the 5km run route. A mix of flat paved seafront promenade and the off-road trails within the woods of Culver Cliff. A cheeky little 'Killer climb' makes for a sting in the tail before returning along the sea front to finish arms aloft on the beach! The Olympic Distance will consist of a 1500m sea swim and then two laps of the bike and run courses. Whats not to like?? Will we see you on the sandy start line?
