Channel Events are super excited to be bringing you the 2022 Minehead Triathlon.
Taken on by Channel Events in 2018 the event was huge success and we are keen to continue to grow this event as an amazing season finale in the British Triathlon calendar going forward. 2022 will be the fifth time we’ve delivered this event and we’d love to see you on the sandy start line!
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 now utilises its coastal location by introducing an open water 2 lap sea swim in the shadows of North Hill but within the safety of the bay.
The bike route remains 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. The ‘Cheeky Climb’ Strava segment makes for a sting in the tail before returning along the sea front to finish arms aloft on the beach!
Whats not to like??
Will we see you on the sandy start line?
