Croyde Ocean Triathlon

14 July 2024

Based at the beautiful, award winning Putsborough Sands the race takes in some of the South West’s most stunning scenery. The start and finish line overlook Putsborough Beach, a 3 km sandy beach stretching up to Woolacombe with views of Lundy Island in the distance.

This Olympic distance course – 1.5km Open water swim, 40km Bike ride & 12km Run –  is not for the faint hearted.

A 1.5km ocean swim along Putsborough Beach, in the Atlantic Ocean, marshalled by fully qualified lifeguards. Then a 38km road bike course winding its way towards Pickwell Manor and up onto higher ground heading towards Ilfracombe, through the Fullabrook Wind Farm. With rolling hills and beautiful views, there is something to see at every turn and plenty of elevation to challenge competitors. Finally a 12km off road run, a demanding, hilly & possibly muddy route, where you might encounter the odd sheep, a run devised by local athletes to give you fabulous views of three bays: Putsborough, Saunton and Croyde. It will include a beach run along the famous Croyde surfing Beach and will encompass Baggy Point, before dropping back into Putsborough.

Join us for one of the most fun and challenging events in the triathlon calendar.
