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) will be open from 18th Sepember via the British Triathlon Events website.Apologies for the delay - this is due to enhancements being made to the BTF online entry system.

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 no
