Calendar of Events 2015
In 2014 GeoPark Adventure was set up to deliver sporting events in South Devon. As a test year, 2014 was such a great success; the GeoPark Adventure Triathlon Series 2015 was born. The series is designed like stepping-stones to entice ‘new starts’ into the world of swim/bike/run through a series of progressively challenging events. All GeoPark Adventure events take place in the world Geopark site, Torbay, the English Riviera. Planning to utilize the best of the local facilities and environment, fully supported by the English Riviera Geopark and local council, GeoPark Adventure will bring Triathlon into South Devon.
Starting in April, the ‘Donut Duathlon’ will take advantage of a fabulous new local amenity, the Torbay Velopark. Targeted at new starts and seasoned athletes, the ‘Donut’ Duathlon will help kick start the season. A month later in the late May bank holiday, a triathlon weekend will start, unique to the South West, with junior races on the Saturday afternoon and adult races on the Sunday morning. The totally off highways triathlon is the perfect way for anyone to start in the sport, with a pool based swim, followed by Velopark ride and parkland run. The transition from ‘zero to hero’ in triathlon will become complete when an open water sea swim triathlon is offered at the start of August. Triathletes can enter either the Palm Tree Sprint or the GeoTri Standard distance to fully understand and create that addictive love for the sport.
This progressive series naturally develops the competitor, through quality, staged events, encouraging anyone and everyone, plus their families, to give ‘tri-a-go!’
