ATW Great Yarmouth Triathlon – 25th September 2022

Delivered by Triathletes, for Triathletes

Pack up your bucket and spade as well as your swim, bike and run gear for the second running of the event that is already becoming one of the most popular triathlons on the East coast of Britain.

You have the choice of  Sprint or Standard. Both the events will begin with a beach start and multiple laps of a 250m sea swim, complete with an Australian-style exit at the end of each lap and a short run before re-entering the water. The cycle heads North along the coast before heading inland to ride round the surrounding countryside before returning to to the seafront for a multi-lap run leg on the promenade, ideal for the support of cheering spectators.

The event distances are as follows:
Sprint event features a 500m swim, 21km bike and a 5km run.
Standard event features a 1000m swim, 38km bike and a 10km run.

If you’re looking for a bigger challenge – enter our 100K Centurion Triathlon!

Please note that the swim is in the sea and will be more challenging than a typical open water or pool swim. Wetsuits are not compulsory but are recommended subject to British Triathlon temperature restrictions.

Although we aren’t putting a time limit on the course, this bike course will include a managed junction as the route leaves town. This junction will allow athletes an unobstructed ride through for up to 45 minutes after the leader has passed. Any athletes more than 45 minutes behind the leader at this point will be allowed to continue, but have to obey the traffic lights at this junction. On the way back in to town this junction does not affect the route.
