Worthing Triathlon is one of the original sea swim events and has been going since 2003. We’re located on the beautiful West Sussex coastline between Brighton and Chichester where the water quality has been good for the last few years. Three race distances are available, Standard, Sprint or Relay which are suitable for all abilities. Our Race HQ is on the grass by the Alinora Boat Ramp, Marine Crescent (near the Yacht Club BN12 4JE), Goring Beach, Worthing. This is a quiet shingle and sand beach with acres of grass alongside the promenade. Spectators have a great view of all the action and can sit on the grass above the transition area in their own little amphitheatre! Raw Energy Pursuits are also proud to be hosting Police National Triathlon Champs in 2019 over the Standard distance (1.5km swim, 41km bike, 10km run). The Sprint distance is 750m swim, 21km bike and 5km run; the Relay Triathlon is held over the Standard distance. The Worthing Triathlon has been described as a ‘Bear Grylls’ event in that competitors are tested by the elements in all 3 disciplines. There is no hiding place at Worthing, but that’s why the event has been so successful for 16 years and competitors leave with a sense of achievement. Conditions vary with wind, currents and the tide all having an effect. Excellent safety coverage from the Council Safety RIBS, Surfer Skis, Sailing Club RIBS and our experienced kayak team together with beach spotters. The bike course is an out and back rolling course on A class roads through the South Downs National Park via Long Furlong and it’s beautiful views before heading back downhill into Goring-by-Sea. The run course is fast and flat with a palm tree lined promenade and turn points at the historic Lido and Pier. Sprint waves start at 08:00. Standard/Relay at 08:20.

3rd time to attempt the Poseidon Adventure of Worthing Triathlon! Never let the look of a calm sea fool you it was still a bit choppy although lovely and warm! Shame tide times were against us this year so it was a late start for a Triathlon. I competed in the Sprint. Transition ...Read full review
Worthing Standard Triathlon as Olympic distance was probably not a great one to pick as a first attempt. I do like a challenge so arriving on the morning to see the most choppiest waves this was going to be interesting! Transition was a good size and very organised with bikes pla...Read full review
