Swanage Triathlon Festival JUNE 2024

🗓️ Sunday 30th June 2024

Challenge yourself to this year’s Swanage Triathlon – an open water swim in the beautiful Swanage Bay, an undulating bike ride through the Purbeck landscape and a run with panoramic views of Swanage, Studland and beyond from the Purbeck Ridgeway.

It’s a challenging but rewarding event, with plenty to do in town if you’re staying for the weekend.

You can complete the triathlon solo or as part of a relay team.

There will be prizes for first, second and third male/female finishers and all age group categories and official photographs will be taken on the day.

Spectators are welcome to cheer participants on, and marshals and medical assistance will be available en route.
