We are counting down to the Eastbourne Triathlon, set to take place in front of the historic Grand Hotel on Saturday 3rd June 2017. Once again, the event has attracted hundreds of participants, from first timers, to professionals, Rio Olympians, Paralympians and from ages ranging from 16 to 81 years old.
We have an exciting announcement!
I can confirm that the Eastbourne Triathlon will have a partially closed-road course for the bike section in our 2017 event.
Pro triathlete Sam Wade is the latest to confirm he will be on the start line for the new Eastbourne Triathlon on the 3rd June 2017.
Wade is a sprint triathlon specialist and as such, becomes a huge shout for taking the title in what is shaping up to be a quality professional race that will take place alongside hundreds of other amateurs and first timers over the 600m sea swim, 20km road cycle and 5km run triathlon challenge.
At just 23, Sam Wade can boast the following achievements on his CV:
- 20-24 British Sprint Champion
- 3rd Elite at the 2013 British Championships
- Represented Team GB at BUCS and European Cup level
- 2nd at the Hever Castle Triathlon 2015
Wade will have his work cut out as the stunning scenery offers a challenging course, and fellow professional Karl Alexander has also confirmed his place with more expected to come. The women’s race will also feature Alice Hector, Parys Edwards and Yvette Grice.
