Entry is now closed as we are fully subscribed.
Welcome to the inaugural Sunny Hunny Triathlon, organised by King's Lynn Triathlon Club with the support of the Borough Council of West Norfolk and Alive Leisure.
This spectator-friendly race involves a 200m pool swim, followed by a looped 18km (3 x 6km) cycle around Hunstanton then a 3.5km run from transition to the St Edmunds gardens near the lighthouse and back to finish on the green. The route will be fully signed and marshalled, and the race will be chip timed.
This is great for novices aged 15+, but we think it also has enough interest to interest the more experienced triathletes out there too.
We look forward to seeing you on the 19th

Registration & Race Briefing
Registration for the event will be in Alive Oasis. You are encouraged to register on Sat 18th, when you can pick up your race pack and ask any last-minute questions. More importantly however, it will give you more time to set up your transition in the morning. If you are a member of the BTF, please remember to bring photo ID and your race license, otherwise you will need to purchase a day race licence during registration.
The race briefing is mandatory for ALL competitors and is a chance for the race director to inform you of any changes from the race manual, such as any new hazards or last-minute changes to the route. You will be informed of the location of the briefing at registration, but it will likely be at Alive Oasis.

There is a small spectator area overlooking transition and when you head out on the bike, your support can have an easy walk to the green in time to see you come past on your bike on each of your 3 laps. They can then walk to the bottom of the green to cheer you on your run and again at the finish. There will be some tri-related exhibitors on the green
Alive Oasis has ample toilet and changing facilities. You will be allowed to use the lockers and return to have a shower after the race.
Secure transition is in the skating rink next to the pool and only competitors and race officials will be allowed in. There is a small spectator area overlooking the rink that will be open.
Access will be from the gate on to Seagate Road and marshalls will inspect your bike and helmet before being allowed to rack, but they are not allowed to fix any problems. There will be a bike mechanic from Richardsons Cycles on hand during both registration sessions that may be able to help. Space is going to be VERY limited in transition and bags are not allowed to be kept next to your bike, so please keep your kit to a minimum.
Transition will be closed during the race, meaning you can bikes after their race once the last competitor is out on their run.
Set off at regular intervals, swimmers will complete 8 x 25m lengths before exiting the pool via the steps and out in to transition.
Any type of bike is allowed, so long as it is in a roadworthy condition and has working brakes. The event is NOT draft legal.
The mount/dismount line will be located at the end of Seagate road. You will cycle to the roundabout at the bottom of Oasis Way and complete 3 laps of the town, before returning back along Seagate Road to transition. The route will be fully signed on the day and marshals will be present at most junctions
The bike route is pretty simple, but you can find a .gpx file below, and there is a strava course available on Strava. You don't need to have a Strava account to view the course. If you are worried about doing too few or too many loops, just remember you need to go up the hill three times. SunnyHunnyTri (Bike).gpx
