Jurassicman Extreme Triathlon

August 2020 - Devon to Dorset

The Jurassicman Extreme Triathlon will be back in 2020. Please click here to be added to the mailing list to be notified about the date.

The Jurassicman Extreme Triathlon is a point-to-point, iron distance event that starts in Budleigh Salterton and ends in Lulworth Cove.

With over 8600ft of climb on the bike and 3675ft along the coast path run section, this is not an event for the faint hearted.

"This is without doubt the 'Hardest Iron Distance Event in the UK, and that's official... coz I say so!"

- Anthony 'TC' Gerundini - 2013/4 winner

The event HQ and campsite is based in Charmouth and you will be transferred from here to the start point in Budleigh Salterton for the 2.4 mile sea swim. The epic 112 mile bike course goes all the way to Swanage in Dorset. And finally, the 26 mile run route follows the Dorset Coast Path (last section of the ONER) to Lulworth Cove.

Entry options available
Jurassicman Solo - 2.4m sea swim, 112m road bike and finish with a coastal path marathon.

Jurassicman Relay - 2.4m sea swim, 112m road bike and finish with a coastal path marathon in a team of 3.
