Organiser's Description

Beccles Triathlon 2024


Welcome to the registration for the Beccles Triathlon.


The event takes place on Sunday 9th June 2024. We're hoping it's going to be a brilliant day for both those who are new to triathlons and seasoned athletes, as well as a real spectacle for townsfolk and visitors to our lovely little corner of the Waveney Valley.


There will be a prize giving at the end with our beautifully crafted Beccles Triathlon trophies going to the first male, first female and first relay team, as well as trophies for places and age group winners.


There are 200 places, and every year we sell out. As soon as the entry list is full, a waiting list automatically opens - so complete your registration as instructed on screen and your name will be added to the waiting list. Last year we took over 40 people from the waiting list, so keep an eye on your inbox if you're on the list!                                                          



The Route

With the magnificent, award-winning Lido at its heart, this unique triathlon weaves competitors around the pretty Waveney Valley countryside, through quiet Suffolk villages and along the Waveney River towpath, finishing in the friendly market town of Beccles itself, back at the Lido.


A sprint distance triathlon, competitors will swim 420m (14 lengths) in the heated outdoor pool at Beccles Lido in Puddingmoor before embarking on a 20.3km cycle route through the villages of Gillingham and Geldeston, up to the world-famous Chicken Roundabout at Ditchingham, past Wainford Maltings and back along the scenic and undulating edge of the Valley to Beccles. The event concludes with a 6.7km run via Beccles Quay and along the Waveney River towpath.


The bike route has been specially designed to incorporate only left turns – making it safer and cyclist friendly.  Marshals will be out in force to give guidance, encouragement and to help keep everyone safe. 

All routes are available to download from the Beccles Triathlon website
