The great thing about The Maldon Triathlon is the opportunity for spectators to see the athletes regularly throughout the entire race.
We recommend you get there for the swim start at 5:45am.. it is quite a spectacle! The swim follows an out and back course along the promenade allowing spectators to easily follow their favourite athletes. As the athletes exit the water there is ample space for spectators to line the path leading to transition. At this point you can see the athletes in transition where they will change from swim to bike and cycle out of the park.
If you would like to view the athletes on the cycle course we recommend heading to Latchingdon where there should be plenty of support. The athletes will pass through Latchingdon twice. Alternatively head out into the Dengie and investigate the area, there are plenty of small towns and villages where you can have a drink and cheer the athletes on. Please DO NOT follow athletes around the course, this is outside assistance and they will be disqualified. We also ask that you do not park anywhere which may be disruptive or dangerous to the athletes.
The run course will be an incredible experience for the athletes, it is here when they need your support most! The run is based at Promenade Park with Sprint distance athletes completing 2 laps and Olympic distance athletes 4 laps. The Park will be very busy, especially if the weather is good. There is plenty to keep you entertained at the park throughout the day.. just make sure you're at the finish line in time for your favourite athlete.
Remember that everyone is here to help the athletes and give them a memorable day. Please cooperate with the marshals and event staff.
We look forward to seeing you at The Maldon Triathlon and hope you have a great day!
