Bude’s own Quadrathlon event should attract even more followers this year, inspired by the Olympics, especially as it is now the UK’s World Cup Event.
Shoreline Outdoor Pursuits have now set the date for Sat 8th September and there is still time to enter. The event includes a gruelling 800m sea swim, partially protected by the Bude breakwater, then a 30 km cycle race, taking in steep Cornish cliff roads including the 1 in 3 at Millook. This is followed by a 10km kayak race on Bude Canal and a 10km run taking in towpaths, fields and coastal path. This is an elite endurance event. I can only sit back in awe of the athletes who participate in this event which makes a mere marathon look easy by comparison (says she who couldn’t do that either!!) Deep respect!
