The Original Swanage Triathlon Festival is set in the seaside town of Swanage which resides in an area of outstanding beauty know as The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset. The open water swim is within Swanage Bay where if the water's are clear, you may be able to spot some great sea life. The bike section is not for the faint hearted as includes several hill climbs but when you go up, you must come down including a great descent on Kingston Hill! The run heads North out of Swanage Town and up onto Ballard Down Ridge, an area of chalk downland on the Purbeck Hills. The routes are challenging but the views are worth it, we promise!
