The Channel Triathlon offers a wide range of events to suit athletes at many levels from an introductory GO TRI for the beginner or those returning from injury, an open water swim, Sprint and Standard triathlons, Aquabike and Relay Team events at all levels except the GO TRI.

This is a charity event.

It is based at Folkestone Harbour where transition occupies the front car park.


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.
