Sundried Southend Triathlon 2019

Join us for the 3rd annual Sundried Southend Triathlon on Sunday 16th June 2019. Held in the coastal town of Southend On Sea, this triathlon is fast and flat making it perfect for beginner triathletes trying this sport for the first time as well as seasoned racers looking for a personal best.

With a 750m swim, 20km bike, and 5k run, this sprint distance triathlon is the perfect distance to test yourself if you're new to triathlon. With fantastic support from local businesses and gyms, you're guaranteed to have a great day out.


Open Water Swim

The Sundried Southend Triathlon takes place in the coastal Essex town of Southend-on-sea and for 2018. The swim takes place in the Thames Estuary and stays parallel to the shoreline, meaning it is perfect for those who are not wholly confident or experienced with open water swimming.


2018 Winner

Our winner for 2018 was professional triathlete and Sundried ambassador Matt Leeman. He accomplished an incredible win in a time of 1:00:22.
