Brought to you by Mad Hatter Sports - Friendly, mostly fun, often mad, challenging events in Cornwall!
A new and exciting event for 2018 is the ultimate alternative triathlon for all skill levels – our inaugural Swim/SUP/Run at Polkerris beach. The traditional bike leg is replaced with a Stand Up Paddle board! No fancy carbon bikes, just you, a SUP board and your core strength.
Whether you're a novice or experienced triathlete, Swim-SUP-Run proves to be a different kind of challenge.
The tri starts with a 750m sea swim. Once completed and after a quick transition on the beach you'll pick up your SUP and jump aboard for a 1km paddle before returning to the beach to return your SUP and back into transition. Here you'll get your trainers on for the final leg, an out and back run along the South West Coastal Path towards and across Par beach before looping back and returning to finish on Polkerris beach.
The event is open to both individual and relay entries so if you don't fancy doing all three disciplines, grab a mate or two and do one each!
A limited number of SUPs will be available to hire however we cannot provide hundreds, they will be distributed at registration and you will not be able to select board size etc.
