RACE 5 – 12th September – Awesome Foursome Quad – WQF Race Series – 800km sea swim/30km road bike/10km canal kayak/10km road run.
This is one of our longest running established Quadrathlons, in beautiful Cornwall in the surfing town of Bude. It never ceases to amaze me, I have raced it in all weathers …. it is always a brilliant exciting and challenging race and a great end the race season! Swimming in the sea, there’s plenty of hills on the bike, a historic canal for the kayak and amazing coastal views on the run! It’s one of those addictive races that keeps drawing you back. The race is on a Saturday so plenty of time for sun, sand and surf too! Entries OPEN Awesome Foursome Quadrathlon
