This is the 16th year of the Arundel Lido Triathlon and is likely to sell out as it has done most years. Arundel is steeped in history with its Castle and the River Arun running through the town. Located between Chichester and Worthing in West Sussex, Arundel is a very popular location with tourists and great place to spend a weekend away. Race HQ is at one of the UK’s best Lido’s, right on the banks of the River Arun and under the shadow of the castle.

All competitors will receive one of our famous T-Shirts, pack of Protein Balls and free unlimited race photographs from Sussex Sport Photography.  Bring the kids down to support you and make the most of our free face painting from one of the country’s top artists. We’ve also got Eleven Sportswear and South Downs Bikes on site for all your needs.  Arundel’s shops, cafes, pubs, museums, boat trips and castle will also be open to the public, making this a great event for the whole family.

What are the distances?  Our Standard Triathlon & Relay Teams will race over a 800m swim, 35km bike, 9km run and the Sprint over a 400m swim, 19km bike, 5.4km run. The outdoor pool is heated, so no wetsuits are required.  The bike course is on popular roads used by cyclists with good visibility.  Despite the long gradual climb shortly after the start, the bike course is fast.  The Standard run takes athletes along a stunning tree lined avenue by the Castle and River Arun before heading to the trip point at Offham Lodge and the village of South Stoke. The Sprint run is much flatter and turns at Offham Lodge for a fast 5km.  Standard & Relay competitors start at 6am and the Sprint at 7:40am.
