The triathlon itself will start at 8am. Swimmers will start on the Bank End slipway and will be set off in batches of 10 - 15 at a time to ease conjestion in and out of the transition area. Transition area will be at Bideford Quay Public Car Park.  Registration will open at approximately 6.45am.  Hopefully we will also have a chance to register the evening before the race as well.  If so, this will also be at the transition area, Bideford Quay public Car Park.

 

The swim will consist of a 500 mtr swim and will pass under the arches of the famous Bideford Old Bridge. Swimmers will hopefully be well supported by many cheering onlookers on the Bridge and on the banks of the river.

 

The 23.5 km bike route will take competitors on an undulating loop of the surrounding countryside. A few hills have been thrown in for good measure as well (it's hard not to around here). There are also places you can get down on your aero bars too.

 

The 5 km run route takes runners along the Tarka trail and back.
