Eastbourne Triathlon is organised Beyond Sport Marketing and we welcome elite triathletes to the Eastbourne Triathlon.

The event is an ‘open’ race, so the overall titles and any prize money will be contested by all the entrant. The event has been designed and will be produced to welcome first timers, elite athletes or weekend warriors of all standards.

There is a package for professional athletes, please contact richie@beyondgoinglong.co.uk for further information.

Here are some of the pros who took on the 2016 event, with our inaugural champions being Australia’s Ben Allen and Great Britains Jacqui Slack.

Parys Edwards has finished in the top 3 of five out of seven of her professional races to date. Her career highlight comes in the form of winning Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay, with 2nd at the iconic Alpe d’Huez and a win at Challenge Laguna Phuket ranking right up there.

Before turning pro, Parys was a World, European, British and English champion and she will take some beating here at Eastbourne.

Alice Hector

alice-hector-ironman-franceAlice has been racing as a professional triathlete since 2014. She is a recently crowned IRONMAN 70.3 champion (Ruegen – in a course record time), 2* Israman champion, and has collected wins and podiums at several 70.3 and full ironman distance races.

Alice was the fastest amateur overall at the World Sprint Championships in 2013, which is when she decided to make the move to the pro scene.

She is looking forward to going back to her Sprint roots at the 32Gi Eastbourne Triathlon and it will also be a perfect prep race for the European 70.3 championships later that month


Yvette Grice
Eastbourne’s own champion triathlete, Yvette Grice, returns to her hometown race looking to better her 3rd place from 2016. Yvette is a former Ironman UK and Challenge Henley-on-Thames winner so she is no stranger to the top step of the podium at major international races. Yvette is well known locally for being a multiple champion of the Eastbourne Half Marathon, Beachy Head Marathon and many other local and international races alike. Can she win the big one in her own town? Don’t bet against her!
