Bournemouth International Triathlon

triathlon swimmers at the starting line



Sunday 8th September 2024 | West Cliff Gardens

Bournemouth has been selected to host the Great Britian Age Group 2025 Team Qualifier for the European Championships! Make sure you book early as we sold out in 2023 with over 100 on the waiting list!

Bournemouth International Triathlon is located on the west side of Bournemouth Pier. Both sprint and standard distance swims start on the award-winning blue flag beach just under the zig zag of West Cliff Gardens before heading out of Bournemouth on a fast bike course towards the market town of Ringwood on the edge of The New Forest. You then finish by running along the promenade to finish back on the sand!

You have the most fantastic opportunity to qualify and compete for the GB Age group team at Bournemouth as it hosts the Standard Distance European Qualifier. To find out more please see HERE. You can also give the Aquathlon a shot and submit your time to BTF to see if you can qualify for their multisport team!
