THE ORIGINAL SWANAGE TRIATHLON
Sunday 30th June 2024 | Sandpit Field
The Original 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 open water swim is within Swanage Bay where if the water's are clear, you may be able to spot some great sea life. The bike section is not for the faint hearted as includes several hill climbs but when you go up, you must come down including a great descent on Kingston Hill! The run heads North out of Swanage Town and up onto Ballard Down Ridge, an area of chalk downland on the Purbeck Hills. The routes are challenging but the views are worth it, we promise!
With so many route options, it's the perfect club getaway weekend where there is something for everyone. Swanage is wonderful little seaside town with a whole lot for the family to do. This is a true weekend away that happens to involve Triathlon!

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!
Parking is available in the surrounding roads for free on some of the roads (check the signs!) or the Main Beach (Victoria Avenue). Long Stay Car Park: details of car parking and charges can be found on the Town Council website. More details will be available in the pre-event information pack for the event.
