We couldn’t think of a better location for a sporting event so we decided to set up the Crantock Biathlon. This year Crantock Surf Life Saving Club are hosting the biathlon and we have been kindly supported by Legacy Properties.
You start with a 2km swim up and back down the tranquil Gannel River Estuary. A transition on the beach is followed by a soft sand run across Crantock Beach, up the dunes and around West Pentire Headland, finishing back on the beach (5km run).
The Youth Biathlon features a 200m swim and 1000m beach run and is for children ages 8-14. Distances may vary depending upon conditions on the day.
If you’re not too keen on the running section why not enter the ‘Crantock 2 K’er’ swim? Starting just before the Biathlon you’ll swim 2km with a little tidal assistance before turning around and swimming back down the river on the slack-tide.
Presentations will take place immediately after the event on Crantock Beach.
