Middle distance triathlon, Titan Weston

Sunday, September 18, 2016. 07:00

Weston Super Mare provides the perfect location for a middle distance triathlon race with a sea swim, a bike route that takes you up the ‘iconic’ Cheddar Gorge and a run along the Weston promenade.

Will you come and try to take the £500 cash prize for the winning Titan Man or Titan Woman…? Or will you be after the ‘special prize’ for the fastest ascent of the Cheddar Gorge…?

The middle distance triathlon event is located on the promenade of Weston Super Mare and is easily accessible from South Wales, Bristol, Birmingham, London and the South West by both car and train.

The 1.2 mile swim is a one-lap course and takes place in the clean sea waters which have recently won an award from the Marine Conservation Society for excellent bathing water quality.

The 60-mile bike course takes you out of the town and towards the town of Cheddar where competitors will climb up through the gorge twice, one of the most iconic cycling locations in the UK

The final 13.1 mile run is a three-lap out and back route along the promenade to the old pier and back, so it’s great for spectators!

The Titan race series incorporates the following events:

Titan Brecon – 18th June 2016
Titan Dartmoor – 2nd July 2016

Cut Offs

There are no official cut offs for each section of Titan Brecon, though we do expect competitors to be close to finishing within 8.5 hours. However, we take a common sense approach on this, and if you are close to completing you will be able to finish. If you are deemed to be a danger to yourself you will be asked to stop, or if you are taking significantly longer than we deem acceptable you again will be asked to stop. For more information on cut offs please email  james@dbmax.co.uk
