This event is about testing yourself to the limit while fundraising for the Royal Marines Charity, participating in a challenging and exciting iron distance triathlon race over one of the most iconic landscapes of the United Kingdom.
Start Bay was a key training ground before the 1944 D-Day invasion of Europe.
Operation Tiger D-Day rehearsals cost the lives of hundreds of American soldiers and sailors.
The location has immense military significance, so we are looking for athletes that embrace both the spirit of comradeship and selflessness as embodied in the soul of the Royal Marines, as well as the mental and physical challenge of racing 226km over land and sea.
Anything we do as able-bodied triathletes pales into insignificance compared to the challenges faced by these brave men and women who put their lives on the line and were gravely injured on our behalf.
By pledging to raise a minimum of £166.40 you will be making a difference.
By exceeding that amount, and going for the prize winning target of £1664 you will be making a big difference to somebody's life, somebody who was severely injured whilst serving their country with passion and commitment.
Anyone achieving the target will receive a special additional prize TBA.
The fundraiser achieving the biggest total will also receive an additional special prize TBA.
Any triathlon is a challenging proposition.
Any iron-distance triathlon is hard.
Even on flat tarmac and hard-packed ground.
This race is neither of those things.
South Devon hills are notoriously steep and sharp.
Hill after hill after hill.
2x Ben Nevis in total on the roads cycling.
Then a marathon of rocks and roots, ruts and boulders that break your rhythm, on steep, spectacular, cliff-hugging paths.
Add hundreds of kissing gates into the mix, but with nobody to kiss.
This race is one we guarantee you will remember forever.
