Saturday 10th August – just 50 entries remaining

Billed as the “UK’s only sportive triathlon”, Castle to Coast is now only two weeks away. We brought you the launch news earlier this year (HERE), of an event and format that we really liked the sound of. Check out the short video below, which really does a great job – in just two minutes – of explaining the whole thing.

Clearly, it’s been of interest to plenty of other athletes and there are now just 50 places remaining.

IF you fancy joining in at the start of something new, you can enter via www.fullste.am

CASTLE TO COAST: THE ROUTE 

SWIM

The start of the swim is just a short walk from the event village and transition area at Eton Dorney. At 8am on Saturday 10th August swimmers will start in the water, in waves, and complete a 1.2 mile continuous lap, exiting at the far end of the lake for transition. In an effort to reduce stress entrants will be allowed to start at any time within a ten minute start window.

BIKE

The 67 mile ride is fully supported with a feed station, toilet facilities, mechanical assistance and marshals at key locations. Over 3,400ft of climbing awaits as the route takes riders through historic Eton town centre before taking in the Surrey Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty and challenging climbs.

On completion of the bike stage, in the village of Hassocks, entrants will hand over their bike to the transport team who will transport it to the finish line in Brighton or back to the start in Windsor. Run bags and changing facilities will be waiting inside Hassocks Sports Centre before entrants head out onto the South Downs towards Brighton.

RUN

The 13.2 mile run section, along over 90% of fully marked trails, has a challenging start by taking entrants onto the South Downs Way and to the top of Ditchling Beacon. From Ditchling Beacon the route slowly descends through the countryside to Brighton.

FINISH

A finish line party awaits on Brighton seafront where all finishers will receive their medal, finishers t-shirt and samples of Fullsteam’s new Recoverystak rapid post workout recovery drink. Free photography will be available via Fullsteam’s Facebook page in the week after the event.

Kit bags and bikes will be ready to collect for all those departing directly from Brighton. For all those heading back to Windsor the Fullsteam support staff will be on hand to take entrants to the organised transport.
