A huge thank you to everyone involved to making the Croyde Ocean Triathlon a spectacular day
stunning & savage
Based at the beautiful, award-winning Putsborough Sands for the fourth year, the race takes in some of the South West’s most stunning scenery. This Olympic distance Triathlon is one of 220 Triathlons “Top 21 must-do” UK triathlons, with a course not for the faint-hearted.
This year we will be introducing the “Family Cup” competition for relay teams made of family members – from siblings, parents and children to grandparents.
Does your family have what it takes to face the “stunning & savage” North Devon course?
Why the environmental focus to this year’s event?
With an increasing recognition of the environmental challenges that we are facing, we have teamed up with The Pickwell Foundation to encourage greater consideration for the environment as an event, and for the competitors taking part. We are proud to have been awarded Plastic Free status as a business making Croyde Ocean Triathlon the first plastic free event in the UK. In addition to recycling and zero single-use plastic containers at the event, we are minimising our impacts through supplier choice, snacks available and prizes.
Our sponsor, Zoggs, has also developed a new range of swimwear this year, Ecolast™, which begins its life as plastic waste which would otherwise cause damage to our planet, oceans and marine life. They are also working to ensure 100% of their goggle packaging is sustainable by 2020.
We have also teamed up with Stop Micro Waste! to get GUPPYRIEND microfilter washing bags as prizes for the event. Visit their website to see how you can cut down your micro plastic pollution when washing your kit.
