The Dorchester Sprint Triathlon
This will put good use to the months of winter training you will have put yourself through.
300m Pool Swim - 12 lengths of the pool
21k Bike (approx)- Along rolling roads taking in some breathtaking scenery from the summit of the climb at the historic Hardy's Monument
5k Run (approx) - Running around a very spectator friendly and easily accessible course around the Great Field at Poundbury.
This is a perfect event for a fantastic start to the triathlon season.
The race will start at 07:00 with wave starts every 15 minutes - 4 in each lane - your waves will be given to you 1 week prior to the event.
Please enter your swim time as accurately as possible in hrs:min:sec format so a seven minute thirty second swim would look like 00:07:30
Registration will take place on the morning of the event, nothing will be sent in the post.
At registration you will receive everything you need for the race.
Registration and transition will open at 05:30 and close at 06:30 (STC)
As per the new rules from the BTF which we hold the event under - a new age restriction now applies to the bike section
No competitors under the age of 15 are permitted to take part on bike segments on the open road, even if the distance is permitted.”
This is effective from January 2020 - so we can no longer accept entries under the age of 15 for this event - sorry.

Triathlon Transgender Guidance
From 1 January 2023, the updated British Triathlon Transgender policy will come into effect. The below guidance will support the implementation of the policy and serve to ensure that our sport continues to develop in being welcoming, supportive and inclusive for everyone.The guidance will support you in delivering your swim, bike and run activity in accordance with the new policy and in developing inclusive practices. The following core pillars are fundamental to the policy:
Triathlon is a gender affected sport and the policy aims to clarify how competitive activity can maintain fairness whilst ensuring our sport is accessible to all.For non-competitive activity, swim, bike, run and triathlon remains open, accessible and inclusive to everyone and participants are encouraged to participate in their self-identified gender.
For competitive activity for individuals above the age of 12 that is run in accordance with the British Triathlon Competition Rules and events permitted by British Triathlon, fairness of competition is paramount and so the policy stipulates a female category (open to athletes who are the female sex at birth) and an Open category (open to all, including male, transgender and non-binary individuals who were the male sex at birth) be provided.
Registration open from: 05:30:00
