Our race is aimed at competitors of all abilities and experience, from experience triathlete through to those taking on a multi-disciple event for the first time or progressing from the popular GOTRI events. The only stipulation of entry is that your bike must be road safe and that you have a cycle helmet.
Both the run and cycle routes are relatively flat, with the run taking in promenade of Stokes Bay and the bike route heading along Lee-on-Solent seafront towards Stubbington, and for those doing the longer distance towards Titchfield and through Titchfield Haven. Route maps are available, see cycle overview pdf document.
All finishers will receive a bespoke medal and small goodie bag. This years medal design recognises the efforts undertaken to support the war efforts in Gosport, with the run route taking competitors past one of the sites used to construct caissons (code name Phoenix) and associated pierheads used to build the Mulberry Harbours from Oct 1943 to April 1944 and which were an major contribution to the success of operation Overload. Our medal pays respect to those who laboured to construct them.
The race will be fully chip timed, with individual results available to competitors immediately on completion and a full list of results available online.
