Worthing Triathlon | National Aquathlon Champs 2020

Information and registration

12 July 2020

The Worthing Triathlon is one of the original sea swim events and has been going since 2003. Located on the beautiful West Sussex coastline between Brighton and Chichester with good water quality, there are two distances, Standard distance (1.5km swim, 41km bike, 10km run), Sprint distance (750m swim, 21km bike and 5km run); the Relay Triathlon held over the Standard distance.

Not fully fit or fancy a change? Then why not try the Aqua Bike option over the Standard course. The event has been described as a ‘Bear Grylls’ event in that competitors are tested by the elements in all three disciplines, there is no hiding place, but that’s why the event has been so successful for 17 years with competitors leaving with a sense of achievement.

We are also proud to host the National Aquathlon Championships as part of the same event.  After the resounding success of the 2019 event we’re looking to replicate that at Worthing; different type of venue but same fast race (750m sea swim + 5km flat run)

Race HQ is on the grass by the Alinora Boat Ramp, Marine Crescent (near the Yacht Club BN12 4JE), Goring Beach, Worthing.  The swim is in the sea followed by a rolling bike course through the South Downs National Park and a fast and flat run on a palm tree lined promenade with its historic Lido and Pier.  Spectators have a great view of all the action and can sit on the grass above the transition area in their own little amphitheatre.
