"I raced Swanage Tri on Sunday and loved every minute of it, what an amazing place to race! Nice sea swim with lots of safety kayaks, a mixture of hills and fast sections across the Purbecks on the bike, and a brutal run! I don't think I've ever suffered so bad whilst taking in such amazing views" - James Philips - 2018 Triathlete

"A true test from start to finish, from the swim in Swanage bay, the bike course with 2 climbs that would test anybody and finally the run up Ballard down with awesome views ( would love to see the drone footage ) that took everything that I had left this truly was a triathlon. 10/10" - Nick Carnell
