2016 saw Cadence Events deliver the inaugural Clevedon Triathlon…we’re back to make it bigger and better in 2017!
Clevedon Marine Lake is an exceptional and unique open-water swim venue and it provides a fantastic open-water triathlon experience regardless of ability or experience. The race starts with a 400m lap of this enclosed lake setting. Once out of the water it’s onto a fast, mostly flat 21km bike leg that takes you out to the Moors before bringing you back to finish off with a 5km run along the Promenade and on the Pier.
If you’re looking to progress from pool-based races and want to build your open-water triathlon experience, then Clevedon Triathlon is an ideal event for you – it’s a sea swim without the waves!
