Based at Sunny Sands, East Cliff, Folkestone

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

Transition is in a new position on ground immediately above the swim. Easy to negotiate steps to it

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

Marshals are numerous throughout the entire route.
