The 1066 Triathlon
20th June 2021
Start: First Wave 06.30
Following the cancellation of the 1066 Triathlon in June 2020 we at First Stride Events are looking forward to being able to stage the event in 2021.
The 1066 Triathlon follows the route of William the Conqueror through the heartland of 1066 country. Landing on the shores of Hastings after a swim leg, the bike leg climbs from the Hastings sea front, before descending to Pevensey where William the Conqueror first landed in England. We then follow the route adjacent to the shore line, climbing back up towards Battle. Through the heartland of the battlefields.
The bike then returns to Hastings seafront, before a fast, flat run along the promenade at Hastings. With views a plenty and a wonderful historical touch.
