Join CHSW for one of the most fun and challenging events in the triathlon calendar

An Olympic distance triathlon based at the beautiful, award-winning Putsborough Sands, the race takes in some of the South West’s most stunning scenery. 

“Stunning and Savage” is the nick name for this Olympic distance triathlon, a course to be reckoned with and certainly not for the faint hearted.  The challenging course includes a 1.5km ocean swim, 38km road bike and 12km off road run.

The routes

1.5km ocean swim

Along Putsborough beach, in the Atlantic ocean, marshalled by fully qualified lifeguards. Water quality is superb.  Once out of the water there is a steep run back into transition.

38km road bike course

This is an out and back route showing off the stunning countryside that North Devon has on offer.  Starting above Putsborough Beach, the route winds its way towards the historic Pickwell Manor and up onto higher ground heading towards Ilfracombe.  Heading through the Fullabrook Wind Farm with rolling hills and beautiful views, there is something to see at every turn and plenty of elevation to challenge all competitors.

12km off road run

A demanding, hilly and possibly muddy route (where you may encounter the odd sheep!) This is a fantastic run devised by local athletes to give you fabulous views of all three bays: Putsborough, Saunton and Croyde. 2km longer than a standard Olympic distance triathlon, it includes a beach run along the famous Croyde surfing beach and will encompass Baggy Point, before hugging the coastline and dropping back into Putsborough.
