Worthing Aquathlon (Triathlon England National Aquathlon Championships)

Raw Energy Pursuits are proud to have been awarded the National Aquathlon Championships for the second successive year after 2019’s success at The Black Rabbit, Arundel. For 2021 we’ve got an equally impressive venue in Worthing Sailing Club. Located right on the beach, this relatively new state of the art clubhouse will be base for the event and no more than 20 metres from the transition, beach, start and finish.  After the event the presentation will take place on the decking and our plan is to provide breakfast for all competitors as we did last year in Arundel. The event will be a stand alone event and not part of the Worthing Triathlon which has been has been so successful for 18 years.

The National Aquathlon Championships consists of a 750m Sea Swim and a fast flat 5km promenade run to the Lido. There’s likely to be a fair bit going on in Worthing in September and is a great place to spend a weekend for the whole family, so why not make the most of it and start your weekend on the coast.

The beach start sea swim can be testing depending on conditions. Water quality is good and the swim (for the triathlon) has only been cancelled once in 18 years. We have contingency plans for an alternative swim course should the weather be windy.

The one lap run course is fast and flat with a palm tree lined promenade and turn points at the historic Lido Pier and WOW (Worthing Observation Wheel)

The finish and transition area are on the beach in front of the Sailing Club. This is a great venue with excellent spectator viewing with its own cafe and toilets .
