The quintessentially British seaside town of Weymouth is home to the UK's premier long distance triathlon event - Challenge Weymouth.

 

Famous for its fine Georgian seafront and golden, sandy beaches, athletes are spoilt with jaw-dropping scenery throughout the route.

 

Start with a sea swim, in the clear, blue, sheltered waters of Weymouth Bay.

 

 

The fast, smooth bike course weaves through spectacular and varied Dorset countryside which has been designated an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ with its rolling hills, chalk downs, vibrant heathlands and serene woodlands.

 

The run is multiple laps through the historic town and along the seafront Esplanade before finishing at the water's edge.

 

Half and Full distances are available, each with compelling backdrops guaranteed to make this a memorable event.
