Tuesday 24 March

Based on the latest government instruction around Coronavirus/COVID-19, and in line with other national governing bodies, British Triathlon has decided to extend the suspension of triathlon activity until at least 30 June.

This includes all permitted events in England.

Sadly this means that the 2020 Beccles Triathlon will no longer take place as scheduled on 7 June.

The Beccles Triathlon has over the last 7 years become one of the region’s most popular events and we know this will be a disappointment to you. Having spent months arranging everything, it is a disappointment for us too.

Running a triathlon is expensive and hugely time consuming. Many hours have been spent and costs incurred. We have paid deposits and committed to services and our partners face tough times ahead if these evaporate. The Lido relies on the income generated to support its activities, including paying the final bills for the pool refurbishment which is nearing completion; the Lido also faces no swimming or season ticket income until the Lido is allowed to open. Our event cancellation insurance and the Lido’s business interruption insurance have each advised that they will not cover the Coronavirus pandemic.

These are extraordinary and challenging times for us all and we are considering all options, including re-scheduling the Triathlon for later in 2020, and we respectfully ask that you don’t contact us yet while we do so.

For now the government is allowing us to run or cycle daily so we hope you will bear with us and carry on training and we will be back in touch with further updates in due course.


Triathletes and wanabee-Triathletes...
we proudly present the...
8th Beccles Triathlon - Sunday 7th June 2020

REGISTRATION opens at 11am on Saturday 14th December 2019.

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!
