Join us for one of the most fun and challenging events in the triathlon calendar.

Race day in …

Based at the beautiful, award-winning Putsborough Sands and sold out in 2018, the race takes in some of the South West’s most stunning scenery.

220 Triathlon top 21 UK triathlons

This Olympic distance Triathlon is one of 220 Triathlons “Top 21 must-do” UK triathlons, with a course not for the faint-hearted.

The Family Cup

Following the success of the “Family Cup” competition in 2018, does your family have what it takes to be the best in 2019?

Simply enter a relay team made of family members – from siblings, parents and children to grandparents and you could take away the “stunning & savage” trophy?

Pickwell Foundation Reuse Recycle

Why the environmental focus to the event?

With an increasing recognition of the environmental challenges that we are facing, we teamed up with The Pickwell Foundation in 2018to encourage greater consideration for the environment as an event, and for the competitors taking part. We were  awarded Plastic Free status as a business making Croyde Ocean Triathlon the first plastic free event in the UK and continue to work towards improvements and sharing best practice elsewhere. In addition to recycling and zero single-use plastic containers at the event, we minimise 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.

We can all do our part!
