Hilly, but happy.

A highlight of my race season!

Being a new event for 2016 I didn't know what to expect, but it turned out to be an absolutely cracking race with flawless organisation. I would definitely recommend to both novice and experienced triathletes. I'm signing up for 2017 for sure!

A triathlon for everyone

Eastbourne tri was a highlight of my 2016 triathlon calendar, from the beach start sea swim to cycling along beachy head to the hardest hillclimb ever (but great views at the top and a band to bring back the smiles) I loved every minute of it. Super friendly organsation created a fantastic atmosphere and there were even elite athletes. This is a must do event for 2017. Thanks to all the organisers.

Outstanding experience for a Triathlon virgin

Seeking a challenge for my 60th year I thought my hometown's first triathlon would be an exciting challenge for my first triathlon. The event was organised with an exacting,relaxed professionalism and I felt encouraged and supported from entry, through training and then into registration.The Eastbourne Downs and seaside provided and dramatic backdrop and a challenging course.The race day was a joy, well organised,well run with very friendly marshalls and staff.The band at the top of the hill on the run was a lovely touch and the race directors commentary and banter on registration with interviews with some of the elite was excellent and light hearted. Definitely going again in 2017....

Great Atmosphere on the Sunshine Coast.

This was a new event for 2016. It will be good to see it return next year. Personally, I would slightly change the return leg of the run to bypass the steep descent to make it a bit more newbie friendly. Overall a great local event.

Eastbourne Tri

I think this was a great event. Eastbourne needed a good Tri and it delivered. The only fault I would give it is the communication of prize money. It was said there would be prize moment for first second and third, I understand the number of athletes entered meant they couldn't do this however I think it is poor that this was not explained before hand and athletes should of had this explained to them.

My First Tri Race of 2016

32Gi Eastbourne Triathlon

After a busy 2015 competing in many triathlons in and around Sussex, including the XTERRA XC Triathlon in Surrey, I was a little anxious in competing at Eastbourne due to some time off from Tri racing.

Fabulous location for a triathlon

The first edition of Eastbourne Triathlon didn't disappoint. Marshalls were great and everything was well organised. The course is very scenic with the cycle passing around Beachy Head and the run climbing up at the end of the seafront. A challenging but different triathlon for all. Lots of support around the course too. I know lots of first timers who competed and although they found it tough they all really enjoyed it. I have no doubt the event will go from strength to strength and I would definately recommend. I will be back next year.

Eastbourne Triathlon

A challenging but rewarding triathlon course with a chance to get a glimpse of how the professionals do it. Everyone was super friendly and helpful which created a lovely atmosphere for even the most nervous novice worrying about their first sea swim triathlon!

Eastbourne Tri Success

32Gi Eastbourne Triathlon

The Inalgral Eastbourne Triathlon was a huge success. The race had everything and more. The course was very unique taking in everything Eastbourne has to offer. From a sea swim, to flat fast roads and climbs enabling ou to look as far as the eye can see down the coast on the bike. The run was great. Flat and fast sections with one killer hill, challenging the weekend warrior and also the seasoned pro!

Eastbourne Triathlon Relay Review

32Gi Eastbourne Triathlon

As the organizer of Brighton Tri Club's Club Championship races the inaugural Eastbourne Triathlon was a must.  This event was amazing as a club event and all the novices and elites rated this event as a must.  On a personal level I loved the event as part of a relay, due to circumstances out of my control I couldn't race the Tri but loved to join in as part of a relay.  The run course was challenging but the views were worth it for the way down.  Also the best highlight was meeting Ben Allen & Jackie Slack at the end.....AMAZING

First Triathlon

As an Eastbourne resident I was excited about taking part in my first triathlon, the course is one that I know well and although a sprint distance is challenging due to the hills!  The support from locals was  great especially considering the 7am start time.  I think greater support and greater participation could be achieved with a bit more advertising locally, however this was the inaugrual event so i'm sure will be better attended next year.  Unfortuantely the rain came right at the end of the event which dampened the mood somewhat and meant most athletes left to warm up, had the sun shone i expect many would have stayed for longer.  Lets hope the sun shines next year, i will definitely be taking part and have got the traithlon bug and am looking for my next one.

A beautiful and unique course

A great race that was really well organised. The course was beautiful and really unique with the run involving a number of terrains. The bike has a great winding climb, a fast descent a long drag and a flat seafront section..what more could you want! Well done to all that organised it
