Event Directors Mike Morris and Lyn Strahan were delighted with how the event went and is already looking forward to next year. Mike said: “The atmosphere has been brilliant and everyone has embraced the beach and coastal vibe making for a fantastic event.
‘The course makes for a tough triathlon but we really wanted to encourage everyone to take part, regardless of experience. We really saw that today- we had a great mix of serious triathletes taking part alongside those simply wanting to give it a go.”
Where’s the money going?
Four charities are set to benefit from the first ever Croyde Ocean Triathlon, two local to the area and two international. Surfers Against Sewage, Surfers Not Street Children, Croyde Surf Lifesaving Club and Children’s Hospice South West were all named as the events charities.

Organisers hope that the Croyde Triathlon will become known as ‘Destination Triathlon’. They want to encourage competitors to make a weekend out of the event and explore the surrounding towns and villages, which have become a holiday hot spot for families.
