A great spectacle - don't miss it!

2014 saw the third Dawlish Triathlon take place at Dawlish Warren.  Declared by all involved as a resounding success, around 500 athletes of all abilities took part.

Thinking of entering?  Such was the popularity of the event last time, the entry list for 2015 will be open shortly.

Known as a sprint distance triathlon it comprises:

  • 750m Open Water Swim
  • 21.5km Cycle
  • 6km run including the famous Dawlish Sea Wall!

Starting around 8.30am with the sea swim it is a great excuse to get up early and come and support these folk, many of whom are fiercely competitive!

The overall winning time in 2012 was 67 minutes and 29 seconds!!  You have to see it to believe it...
