Ever since we re-opened Beccles lido in 2010 we wanted it to be the focal point for a Beccles Triathlon. That vision became a reality on 2nd June 2013 thanks to a small group of Triathletes and Lido supporters !

The Beccles Triathlon is now an annual event and the 5th Annual Beccles Triathlon will be on Sunday 4th June 2017.
Exciting news for 2017: the 4th Beccles Triathlon won “CLUB EVENT OF THE YEAR” in the Triathlon England Eastern Region Awards and has again been selected for inclusion in the 2017 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.
The Beccles Triathlon is an exhilarating and fun event for seasoned Triathletes and Triathlon novices alike and you will be cheered on by hundreds of spectators and supporters from the start and finish at the Lido or along the route – click here to check out last year’s event.
In between the SWIM in the Lido, and the RUN route along the Waveney River, the BIKE route has been specially designed to incorporate only left turns – making it as competitor-friendly as possible, with marshals out in force to keep everyone safe and stop competitors getting lost. The course is mostly flat on the way out and ‘undulating’ on the way back! Click here to check out the hills 🙂
And there are three marvelous (really quite unique) trophies for the first male, first female and first relay team home, each designed and made by Lido stalwart and Tim Hunkin ‘apprentice’ Graham Norgate. There will also be trophies and prizes for the winning relay team and overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd male and female, and age group prizes for 1st male and female under 20, under 40, under 55 and 55+ (the BTF Eastern League results categories).
WOW!!! We sold out again – in just over 2 hours!!!

The 5th Annual Beccles Triathlon is first and foremost going to be another superb sporting event for Beccles and the region’s top Triathletes, as well as anyone who wants to try a Tri for the first time. But the Triathlon is also Beccles Lido’s main fundraising event of the year, to raise vital and much needed funds to keep the community open air swimming pool, Beccles Lido, open. So there are again some PRIORITY PLACES for anyone who would like to enter SPONSORED in aid of the Lido – in past events this has particularly appealed to people entering their first ever Triathlon. Last year sponsorship raised nearly £2,000 and this really makes a difference to the viability of this fantastic facility. Please contact us if you would like more information. Or you can just visit our Virgin Money Giving site which makes it really easy for you to publicise yourself and raise sponsorship online, just click here and start fundraising! (Quick tip: we recommend you set your page up as a ‘Personal Challenge’)
We will also need Marshals to help us on the day – being a Marshall is easy and a great fun way to be a part of the event if you are not competing – click here to find out more.
