750m sea swim - 20k closed road bike course - 5k flat run

Individual and Relay Team Options

2014 Results

Entries open February 1st.

After a break in 2012 while sea defense work was being carried out along Redcar Seafront another great race was held in 2013. We were again blessed with a flat calm sea and bright sunshine. The road had been re-surfaced to racetrack standard and large crowds again supported the athletes. This really is an exciting little race with a big race feel. Fast and flat with a multi-lap format that makes it great to watch. Places are limited to 200.

The race will be based on Redcar Esplanade right in the heart of the town. The aims are to make this a great race for the competitors and also a spectacular event for the town and it's midsummer visitors to enjoy.

The start will be on the beach at low tide (slightly higher than last year, so less running in shallow water) in an area naturally protected by Redcar Scars. The transition area will be on the seafront adjacent to the new vertical. The bike course is all on closed roads along The Seafront between the Shoreline roundabout and Majuba Road. It will comprise 6 laps making a total distance of 20k. It's all flat with plenty of opportunity for the fast guys to get up a good head of steam.

The run will be 1 5k lap east from the transition area area along the seafront to the turn point just beyond the junction with Green Lane. Then retrace, more or less, to the finish. (provisional)

The event is aimed at all abilities. Our ethos is very much about the personal challenge of triathlon for real world people as well as providing competition in a professionally organised event for those that want it.

The minimum age for entrants is 16yrs on 31/12/2014.
