After a successful switch to a Saturday racing, the DB Max Portishead Triathlon will again take place on a Saturday in 2018 on the 11th August.
This gives competitors and spectators the chance to still really enjoy their weekend.
A great coastal location with a superb outdoor 33m pool venue means this event is continuing to create a buzz in the Bristol area and sells out year on year.
The event starts with a 12 length, 400mtr swim in the fantastic open air Lido which is 33mtrs long and is 5 lanes wide providing a different swimming experience.
After a short run to transition which is situated on the famous Battery Point, it is out on to the 25k bike course. Being at a coastal location it is fair to say that the route is far from flat and has 3 significant climbs in it. The route is stunning and after heading out of Portishead it follows the coastal road before heading in land to complete the first loop.
After completing the second lap it is back in to transition and out on to the 5k run course. This route goes along the coastal path before looping back on itself back to finish on Battery Point.
