About Us

Did you know that the English Riviera’s breath-taking landscape has designated UNESCO Global Geopark status, one of only seven in the entire UK and 140 in the world? A Geopark is an area of globally recognised, unique geological interest, designated by UNESCO.

This event celebrates the English Riviera's outstanding landscape and starts with a great sea swim in the warm waters of Goodrington Sands. Then it’s onto the bikes for a challenging loop around the Torbay area and finally a stunning out and back off-road coast run over towards Brixham.

Be warned it’s a tough course. The first 6 miles of the bike course is rolling but then you hit Parliament Hill which averages 11 percent and another climb before the super-fast descent towards the finish (although if you’re doing the Standard Distance you have to do it all over again in your second lap). The run course is also tough with some steep hills & steps to contend with.
