This totally traffic-free venue is the perfect way for anyone to start in the sport of triathlon, with a pool-based swim, followed by a Velopark ride on smooth, flat tarmac and a flat parkland run. There is also a category for relay teams.
The swim, in the 25m pool is followed by between one and 13 laps on the super-smooth tarmac of the Velopark. The race finishes with a one or two-lap run (depending on your category) on a fast parkland course.
This event is part of Torbay Triathlon Spring.
For 2024 the run course will be accurately measured and exactly 2.5K per lap and the Sprint bike course has been extended to 19.5K. Veteran prizes in 5-year age categories will also be awarded.
On Saturday afternoon there will be a new Team Relay in the Olympic format you saw at the Tokyo Olympics.
A fantastic traffic-free triathlon location for people of all ages and abilities.

Sportiva Events is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of this event. Here are a few of their initiatives:
For all events which include a t-shirt, there is the option to plant a tree instead through a partnership with Treesnottees
New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.
Lots of competitors are not interested in finishers' medals so they are now optional. A £2 charity donation is made for every medal not selected.
Swim hats are provided for open water swimming events as they help the water safety teams keep track of swimmers. However for all pool events, swim hats are now on request to reduce wastage.
Reusable zip ties are used and all rubbish is sorted for recycling after the event.
At the Burrator 10K running race those who commit to walking or cycling to the event get £5 discount.
Great event really enjoyed it. It's a 10 out of 10 from me: very well organized, well done and thank you! John T
