Castle to Coast will be back in 2020

Months and months of planning – and then the weather, almost literally, blows it all away. That’s what happened late last week to the Castle to Coast Triathlon, the innovative new ‘Sportive’ format Windsor to Brighton event that i has been due to take part in myself. When you see some of the footage from the weekend, there can be little doubt that the decision to cancel was 100% the correct one…

I’m pleased to hear that all of the work done in planning the event has not gone to race, with early confirmation that the event date will be Saturday 25th July 2020.

Early bird entry pricing will be available when entries open on Friday. Here’s the full announcement from the organising team.

Castle to Coast rescheduled for 2020 due to extreme weather

  • Last Saturday’s inaugural Castle to Coast Triathlon cancelled due to extreme weather forecast
  • 2020 event will take place on Saturday 25thJuly
  • Entries open on Friday 16thAugust 2019 at 9am from
  • All 2019 entrants to receive a full refund and discounted priority entry for 2020

With last weekend’s weather forcing the cancellation of the inaugural Castle to Coast Triathlon, organisers Fullsteam are determined to go all out to look after its participants and focus on a new launch date for the event in 2020 – Saturday, 25 July.

2019’s entrants will all receive a full refund for the cost of their 2019 entry and a discounted priority entry to next year’s event.

Lee Brown, Director and Founder of Fullsteam said: “It’s a massive shame that we were forced to cancel but the weather is out of our control. We were not prepared to compromise our commitment to the health and safety of our participants or spectators, and it turned out to be 100% the right call as Saturday’s conditions were atrocious.”

“We are now looking forward to 2020 and very much hope that all those who had been attracted to enter Saturday’s event by our innovative sportive format will be able to join us next July instead. We can’t wait to share this exciting concept with the world of triathlon.”

The Castle to Coast Sportive Triathlon will see entrants undertake a challenging 1.2-mile swim at Eton Dorney, followed by a 67-mile open road ride through the scenic, yet challenging Surrey Hills and a 13.2-mile trail run up Ditchling Beacon and through the South Downs for a finish on Brighton seafront.

Early bird entry is available from Friday 16thJuly at 9am from
