This is a charity event.

It is based at Sunny Sands, East Cliff, Folkestone


There are many pay and display car parks nearby.

The Harbour Arm has been developed into a very popular modern pier with entertainment, food and drink outlets. A great place to spend the afternoon or stop for a pint after the exertion of the morning!

The Channel Tri is a Sea Swim Tri from the sandy beach, the Sunny Sands. The sea in September is at its warmest and the bay is protected by the Harbour Arm. Folkestone Rowing club and Folkestone Rescue marshal the swim.

The Bike is a slightly testing outward climb into the countryside with a compensatory downhill return to transition.

The Run is on a flat route through the picturesque coastal park returning in part by the sea finishing back at the harbour.

The entire route has numerous marshals.
