Welcome to the Centurion Triathlon – the Vesuvius of multi-sport racing in south-east England!

The Centurion Distance consists of a 1.9km swim next to Blue House Farm Nature Reserve on the River Crouch, an 87km cycle taking athletes into the peaceful Essex countryside and finishes with an 15km lapped run based around North Fambridge village with huge support from the local community.

The Legionnaire Distance meanwhile, consists of a 950m swim in the same waters, a 40km cycle, finishing with a 7.5km run.

Aquabikers can also take on the AquaBikus challenge of the 1.9km swim, finishing with the 87km bike.
