750m Swim, 20km Cycle, 5km Run

Date: Sunday, 4th July 2021
Start Time:


I really enjoyed the race and it was only my 2nd tri and 1st Sprint.

Everything was really well organised, the T-shirt was great and the bling was very cool as well. Thank you.


The new location has the competitors Swim from the beach, making it easy for supporters to see the start, transition and finish all in one place. The Cycle leads competitors off the island, over the causeway (The Strood) and around the neighbouring village Peldon before returning back to the transition area. The Run consists of a mix terrain; 50% beach and 50% road, keeping it a true Mersea Island Sprint Triathlon! Competitors will finish just off the beach next to the transition area where spectators will cheer each competitor across the line. It has become a tradition for each competitor to remain at the finish to cheer each and every participant home. The Olympic will be taking place alongside one another making it a great atmosphere inside the race area for both spectators and competitors.
