About the event

The Somerset Sprint Tri is held on the same day as our ever-popular beginner's "Try-a-Tri" event at the stunning seafront location of Portishead Lake Grounds / Portishead Open Air Pool.

Online entry for the 2018 Race (27th May 2018) are now open via the British Triathlon Events website. The race will be supported by K2 for the first time in 2018 - providing electronic chip timing and rapid results.

The Sprint Race goes off first, starting at 8am, with a multi-wave pool swim in the unique 33m heated, open air pool on the shore of the Bristol Channel. Straight after that comes a 25K bike course with stunning views from a ridge overlooking the sea, 3 challenging climbs and a route that sticks to quiet roads (B roads & minor roads between Portishead and Walton Village). The run course is a 4-lap loop around Portishead Lake Grounds - fast and flat with lots of opportunity for your supporters to cheer you on from the Esplanade (they have a choice of seafront cafes to relax in while you're out on the bike!).

If you've done our Try-a-Tri before, the Sprint Tri is a great way to take a step up in distance while still enjoying the low-pressure environment of a small event. The max entrants for Sprint & Try-a-Tri combined is 200 so there will be plenty of space in Transition and out on the course.
