The beautiful seaside town of Eastbourne welcomes athletes back for the Eastbourne Triathlon on the 6th June 2021. The 2021 event will once again feature a standard distance race alongside the established sprint distance event. Athletes of all abilities and experience, from novice to elite, can sign up to take on the challenge. Starting from the lifeguard’s beach, triathletes will take on an iconic route, swimming against the backdrop of the historic Eastbourne pier, cycling the roads through the South Downs National Park via Beachy Head and running on the iconic promenade to Holywell, before finishing on the Western Lawns.
