Bournemouth has been selected to host the Great Britian Age Group 2025 Team Qualifier for the European Championships! Make sure you book early as we sold out in 2023 with over 100 on the waiting list!
Bournemouth International Triathlon is located on the west side of Bournemouth Pier. Both sprint and standard distance swims start on the award-winning blue flag beach just under the zig zag of West Cliff Gardens before heading out of Bournemouth on a fast bike course towards the market town of Ringwood on the edge of The New Forest. You then finish by running along the promenade to finish back on the sand!
You have the most fantastic opportunity to qualify and compete for the GB Age group team at Bournemouth as it hosts the Standard Distance European Qualifier. To find out more please see HERE.

MARSHALLING: Sign up HERE to help out
Want to become a Challenging Events Marshal? Volunteers take on many important tasks, from car parking, helping on registration, marshalling out on the course to running a water stop. Marshalling is a super fun day out and without your support to help us deliver the best possible event, our events just wouldn't be able to run. You really can make a huge difference!
Each event is different but you will have a dedicated manager to brief you on your duties and look after you throughout the day. Timings will vary from event to event. We will provide you with a high visibility vest so that you are seen to be part of our event.
And as a thank you, we will send you a free entry code to use against any of our events. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to our Challenging Events family!
No official car park however there's plenty of public car parks to choose from. Please make sure you plan your journey ahead of the event.
