Take on an energising summer coastal challenge

Eastbourne, East Sussex

Set yourself a coastal challenge this summer; take on the Eastbourne Triathlon, dive into the Big Sea Swim or pedal to Eastbourne’s Cycling Festival!

Nowhere else in the UK offers more stunning scenery than Eastbourne when it comes to race day!

Dive into Eastbourne’s award-winning waters and take on the Marine Conservation Society’s Big Sea Swim in July.

Enter one of the many events at the Eastbourne Cycling Festival, from Urban Beach Cross Cycling to Beachy Head Mounting Biking, the challenging trails with breath-taking scenery of the South Downs, Birling Gap, Friston Forest and more, are bountiful.

Go the whole hog and take on the mega challenge of the Eastbourne Triathlon in June; swim 600 metres in warm sea waters, take in spectacular National Park sights in a 25 kilometre road-cycle and finish with a 5 kilometre run along Eastbourne’s glorious promenade.
