Dorchester Dash Triathlon
28 August 2016
If you have Runners from across the South West will be taking a “Dash” through stunning scenery and magnificent historic landscapes in Dorset as part of the annual Dorchester Dash Triathlon which sets off from Dorchester Sports Centre on Sunday 28 August 2016.
Kindly sponsored by: Um Bongo, J2X and The Potting Shed.
Starting at the Centre's indoor 25m pool, competitors take on a 400m (16 length) swim which will be followed by a 24km scenic bike course which exits Dorchester via Poundbury and takes them to the summit of the climb of the historic Hardy's Monument. Returning to the Sports Centre, competitors then tackle the 5km run route which visits Maiden Castle, an Iron Age Hill Fort, which dates back to 4000BC.
Now in its fourth year the Dorchester “Dash” Triathlon is a novice friendly event but it inspires all those taking part whatever their ability because of the unique route which offers competitors breathtaking views through a landscape with a fascinating and ancient past.
Based at Dorchester Sports Centre on the Thomas Hardye School site the Centre offers those taking part in the race, refreshments as well as use of the swimming pool, changing-rooms, toilets and showers.
