The Middle Distance Triathlon fits the Island as though Mersea was created for such an event!
Distances are the same as the half Ironman. The swim starts on the Jetty and takes competitors along the beach. The Cycle will take competitors off the Island along scenic Essex country lanes and over Abberton Reservoir before heading back to the Transition to begin the final leg. The Run for this event is effectively half a Marathon in distance.
Our unique Middle Distance Triathlon finishes with the run, around Mersea Island, the run distance is the exact circumference of Mersea Island. This is a flat triathlon but the terrain is a mixture of road, sand and seawall making it a unique but challenging course.
This is a great event for the more experience triathlete but is also a challenge for endurance lovers. It is also a fantastic event to enter as a relay team. Corporate packages are available.
