The event will take place on Sunday 5th May 2013 at Bradwell Marina in Bradwell Waterside, Essex, England. The triathlon runs alongside the Tour of the Dengie Cyclosportive & Fun Ride.
The Big East Triathlon (formally WatersideTri) is set in an ideal location for triathlon and is great preparation for Ironman, the season ahead, or anyone in search of a new challenge. There are two distances to choose from: Challenge Distance and Middle Distance.
The event consists of an Open Water Swim in the River Blackwater, Cycle around the quiet and scenic roads of the Dengie Peninsula and finishes with an inspirational lapped Run around the sea wall and marshes passing the historic St Peters Chapel. The Big East Triathlon has already established itself as a true classic!
