Southend Triathlon 2019 Route
Sunday the 16th June 2019
Sundried Southend Triathlon is a Sprint distance triathlon
(View on Strava) (750m)
The swim will start at Uncle Tom's Cabin in Shoeburyness and is an out and back route in the Estuary. It is a 750m swim and will stay fairly close to the shore so less experienced or less confident open-water swimmers won't need to worry. The swimmers will be released in waves based upon predicted race times so there will not be too many people kicking around in the water at the same time.

The bike route is going back to the same as the Sundried Southend Triathlon 2017. The traffic lights will be marshalled and if you are caught at the lights in either direction a time allowance will be deducted from your overall ride time.

The run will be a beautiful, scenic stride through Gunner's Park. Home to the local Parkrun, this quiet park is gently undulating to add a little interest and lots of wildlife and scenery to keep it interesting. The park is completely traffic-free but will be open to the public on the day so watch out for dogs who may want to run up and say hi!
