Sundried Southend Triathlon 2018

Congratulations to everyone who competed in the Southend Triathlon 2018. The conditions were particularly tough for this event due to the stormy weather and the wind. A huge congratulations to everyone who successfully completed the swim in tough conditions, especially if it was your first time.

We had 600 competitors complete the race in Southend On Sea and enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere created by thousands of spectators.  

There were seasoned professionals racing alongside first timers and the spirit of the event was truly inspiring. Why not join us for next year? Our event is suitable for all types of competitors, being fast and flat for elite athletes wanting to get a personal best time while staying very novice-friendly for those who have never raced a triathlon before.

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.
