10 March 2021

Having reviewed all guidance and logistics we have regretfully decided not to go ahead with a 2021 Beccles Triathlon.

Our planned date was 13 June, which is before the Government’s currently planned relaxation of all Covid restrictions on 21 June. Complying with all guidelines expected to apply on 13 June would significantly restrict numbers of competitors below the level at which the event is viable and, in our view, as competitive as it should be. It would also restrict or even preclude spectators from the Lido and even Puddingmoor. In combination this means that it would not be the event that we, our competitors and the Town expects. We note that many other events will be going ahead, either because they have the space to run a socially distanced and Covid-safe event before 21 June, or are scheduled after 21 June. Event congestion means that there are no other dates to which our event can be realistically moved.

We understand that this decision will be disappointing to many – it is extremely disappointing to us – but we are already planning to make sure that the next Beccles Triathlon, provisionally scheduled for 12 June 2022, will be the biggest and best ever.

We will be emailing all of those with deferred or priority entries for 2021 with refund or rollover options.

Many thanks for your patience, understanding and ongoing support and we wish you good luck with your training and 2021 racing – to which end Beccles Lido will re-open 29 March and there will be various lane swimming and, we hope, masters swimming options.

Triathletes and wanabee-Triathletes...
we hope to now proudly present the...
8th Beccles Triathlon -
on probably 12th June 2022

REGISTRATION opens 11am on Saturday TBA.

We will update the rest of this website later in 2021 when the likely situation for 2022 becomes clearer.

The Beccles Triathlon is an early season sprint which attracts well-seasoned Triathletes as well as newcomers - and all are equally welcome!

Beccles and our part of the Waveney Valley has lots of beautiful places to get active outdoors (click here to check out the BIKE route), and the Triathlon starts and ends at Beccles Lido.

Check out the huge positive feedback the Beccles Triathlon has received and we hope you will agree that it is the early season MUST ENTER event!

Beccles Triathlon won "CLUB EVENT OF THE YEAR" in the 2016 Triathlon England Eastern Region Awards and has again, for the 5th year running, been selected for inclusion in the Eastern Region race series! If you are a Triathlon newbie or doing the race for fun - don't worry! You are still very welcome and there will be no difference in your enjoyment of the event! But for club triathletes it means that you can score league points! Click here for more details.

We never imagined that we would get so popular, but we sold out every year, sometimes as quickly as 35 minutes! But if that happens, we will again have a waiting list for when people drop out (and they DO drop out!).

The Beccles Triathlon is a big fundraiser of the year for Beccles Lido, and if you would like to race sponsored to help us raise funds please let us know and we can help you set a fundraising page up – please click here to Contact Us and let us know.

Beccles Triathlon is run by Beccles Triathlon Club. We have the COOLEST Tri kit in the region and approaching 100 members, half of whom are ladies - so if you are a newcomer wanting to enter your first Tri we will get you Tri-fit and ready! Seasoned Triathletes looking to improve are also very welcome and we now have members who have raced for Great Britain and raced up to ironman level. We're very friendly and we will often have 2 instructors, so no one gets left behind! Click here for more details.

We hope you like our website. We hope you enter, or will volunteer to help (we will need Marshals and general help on the day - marshalling is great fun and not hard, so why not Click here to find out more).

Or just come along and spectate!
