Bude Shoreline Triathlon 2018
As proud sponsors of the Shoreline Triathlon, we are looking forward to welcoming competitors back to Bude for this year’s much-anticipated event, which takes place on Sunday 24 June.
The triathlon will be a challenging test of endurance, requiring competitors to run, swim and cycle around Bude and the surrounding area, following a demanding loop with impressive views across the coastline and countryside.
Started in 1991, Bude-based outdoor pursuit provider Shoreline Extreme Sports designed the Bude Triathlon route to cater for both experienced triathletes and first time competitors for an exciting race that’ll be highly entertaining for spectators and supporters along the route.
The sheltered bay of Summerleaze provides excellent conditions for the 500 meter open water swim which kicks off the route, and the scenic coast road from Bude to Widemouth Bay provides a hilly route for the 11 mile cycle. To finish, competitors will have to complete a three mile run, following a satisfyingly flat route along the canal towpath, arriving back at Summerleaze Beach where participants will be cheered over the finish line and medals awarded.
The fastest athletes are expected to complete the course in around an hour, with all competitors finishing within two hours, and every competitor will be rewarded with a well-deserved medal.
Our bar and restaurant will be open all day, and our terrace provides the perfect spot for supporters to watch the action unfolding with a drink in hand. We will be offering a complimentary drink to congratulate all competitors in the race, so head down to the bar and celebrate your success with us, with live music too.
If you’re travelling far to compete in the triathlon, we have a range of twin and double rooms available, all with duck down duvets and Egyptian cotton sheets that guarantee a great night’s sleep, essential in preparation for the event and recovery after. We’ll also be offering guests a complimentary barbecue dinner and finishing drink. To book a room, call reception on 01288 389800, and for more information, click here.
