About the Event
After the great success of the inaugural Sark Triathlon in 2016, Mr Hester’s Sark Triathlon has become firmly established as a fantastic, friendly and fun way to celebrate the start of the Bailiwick’s triathlon season each year.
The unique Isle of Sark is the perfect location for a fun off-road triathlon. Stunning scenery, enthusiastic local support, and no cars! The 2024 edition has once again been kindly sponsored by Mr Hester’s, and a number of other Sark businesses.
Weekend Schedule: The start time of the event will be confirmed to ensure that triathletes can travel over on the first boat from Guernsey.
Getting there: Please book directly with Isle of Sark Shipping at https://www.sarkshipping.gg for discounted travel. You can get 25% off, valid Thursday to Sunday (inclusive) by using the code SKTR2024.
Accommodation: Our primary sponsor, Mr Hester’s, offers a variety of great accommodation at www.mrhesters.com. There are also many other accommodation options available. Details can be found on the Sark Tourism website and www.sark.co.uk/where-to-stay. Other sponsors of the event that provide accommodation include Stocks Hotel and Clos a Jaon.
Bike Rental: As the Sark Triathlon is a fun race, we highly recommending that everyone hires bikes once on Sark, rather than bringing your own. In fact you will be given a time penalty if you bring your own bike! Discounted bike rental can be obtained from ‘A to B Cycles’ (https://atobcycles.com) Discount Code: Tri24. We recommend booking online in advance.
If you are travelling over from Guernsey on the morning of the race, if you catch the first boat, you will have time to collect your bikes and take them to T2 before the start of the race.
Please note that bike helmets are compulsory for every competitor during the race.
Race Entry: If you’re a member of the Guernsey Triathlon Club your entry is FREE, you will have to confirm your membership at sign-up. If you’re a non-member the fee will be £20 for an individual entry and £30 per relay team (please decide on a team name and enter this name during sign up): https://my.raceresult.com/234141/registration
The Race Detail: Swim 250m (with wetsuits being mandatory) Run 8km Bike 14km Fancy dress is encouraged! Race rules will be posted on the Facebook event page.
The swim will be in the Creux Harbour starting around 11:30, with T1 on the slipway. Wet gear will be transported to T2 along with your dry clothes bag. You will need to rack your bike and prepare T2 before heading off to the start with your swim and run gear. Post race showers will be arranged. Post race celebrations will continue with an option to purchase food and important post-race hydration!
It wouldn’t be the Sark Triathlon without a post-race social. Having the opportunity for supporters and families to join in the after-race party is one of the things that makes this triathlon so special.
Getting Back : We recommend the 17:45 departure back to Guernsey.
Thanks to our all of our sponsors and the people of Sark.
See you there !
