Channel events are super excited to be bringing you the Minehead Sprint Triathlon this coming October.
After events in 2014, 2015 and 2016 delivered by Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership the Minehead Triathlon didn’t run in 2017. Now with the baton being passed to Channel Events we are keen to make this an amazing season finale in the British Triathlon calendar for 2018 and beyond.
Previously a sprint triathlon with a 400m pool swim, 20km bike route and a flat seafront 5km run, we at Channel Events have grasped this opportunity to change things up a little.
From 2018 the event will now utilise its coastal location by introducing a 750m mass start open water sea swim in the shadows of North Hill but within the safety of the bay. The bike route will remain unchanged due to its fast undulating character, this bike route is an out and back towards the village of Porlock on stunning roads flanked by the high moorland terrain of Exmoor National Park. The views are breathtaking. Finally, you’ll take on the 5km run route. A mix of flat paved seafront promenade and the off-road trails within the woods of Culver Cliff. A cheeky little climb makes for a sting in the tail before returning along the sea front to finish arms aloft on the beach!
