SATURDAY 30th JUNE 2018
St Ives Surf Life Saving Club celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, as well as its 20th Biathlon. The St Ives Biathlon, sponsored by John Fowler Holidays, is the flag-ship event for the charity and one of the highest profile events for the town.
Drawing competitors from all over the British Isles, and with international entries, St Ives Biathlon
saw over 350 people take part last year.
- 220 people took part in the main event: a run from St Ives Slipway, following the coast path to Carbis Bay beach, then swimming back across to the start line.
- 84 people took part in the “novice” event and 50 in the “junior”: a run from St Ives Slipway to Porthminster beach, then swimming back.
- 2017 also saw our first “Mini-athlon”: especially for 6-12 yr olds from our club, with approx. 50 taking part. A test run for this new age category, the event was met with a great deal of enthusiasm, and so we will continue the event and open it to other SLS clubs this year.
