The best triathlon in the UK, the world, the universe or anywhere else you can think of.

Rich Campbell and his wonderful team set the standard for perfectly formed local friendly triathlons with the feel of a huge organisation behind it. Eastbourne triathlon just keeps getting better each year.

Toughie, but I'll be back for more!

Fab event, my favourite so far! Great to have an event with the organisation level of a large event, but still maintain the friendly and personable feeling you get from a local race. The swim, bike AND run were tough thanks to an unforgiving current in the swim, but loved every minute of it. The stunning views throughout the bike and run mean you forget what a tough course this actually is, never thought I'd love a hilly course so much. Everyone was so friendly and helpful throughout, so thanks to all the marshalls and lifeguards.

Brilliant first triathlon experience!

This was my very first triathlon, and as a very new and unwilling swimmer, I was pretty nervous the day before the race. The organisers ensured that newbies were made to feel at ease at the Race Briefing on Saturday, explaining everything and answering all our questions. I had a bit of a nightmare during the swim, getting stuck in the very strong current and getting absolutely nowhere! The swim marshalls/lifeguards were amazing, keeping a close eye on me while I battled through... I wanted that finishers' mug too badly to quit! I'm so grateful for their support and words of encouragement when I finally emerged from the sea after 54 minutes.. and the cheers from the supporters on the promenade were also greatly appreciated!

Fun. Exciting. Beautiful and TOUGH. Great triathlon from amateur to professional. A lot of love, time and investment goes into this family run Tri and it proves it the atmosphere and smoothness of the race.

Best race of the year!

Super well organised event, from the Saturday briefing, to the numbered racking. And the course...well it was stunning this morning, so much so it took your mind off the hills! Richard and team did a cracking job and created a really supportive friendly event!

Finally made my first triathlon!

I was meant to do Eastbourne Triathlon 2017, but fell off my bike and broke my collar bone on the way back from the pre-race briefing on the Saturday evening! One year later I managed not to break myself and completed what seasoned triathletes call the best triathlon in UK. This was a superb event - race organiser Rich is genuinely so enthusiastic and just wants everyone to get round safely and have fun. It is a really tough course (stron sea currents, steep ascent to the top of the Downs) but utterly worth it - exhilarating descents, stunning views and wonderful marshals looking after you and encouraging you on. Big thank you to Rich and his crew. I'll be back next year!

Sun, Sea and Downs

A great day out with excellent organisation and a challenging course. The sea swim was well covered by the lifeguards and then it was off over the Downs on the bike with great views. And finally the run back up the hill for another great view of Eastbourne in the sun. Well worth the effort and definitely coming back next year.

Hometown Triathlo will become World renowned Triathlon

32Gi Eastbourne Triathlon

Since competing in this last Tri I have witnessed first hand the amount of effort, time and world class level of organistation involved in this Triathlon. An increible course that has to be one of the thoughest races in England and yet again this year pulling together some world class athletes. I truly believe this Triathlon could make it onto the world stage as some point in the future. My only advice would be that ther marshalling on the run needs to be improved for especially up beachy head. I also think that if the return run leg dropped down into whitbread hollow rather than straight down beachy head it would be much more friendly for all competing.
