Welcome to XBourne

The organisers of the award winning Eastbourne Triathlon present the UK's newest cross-triathlon.

Whilst we are confident that the event can go ahead in September, there is still a certain degree of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. For this reason, we have decided not open entries for payment until we are certain that the event will be able to go ahead. Instead we are opening a pre-registration system which will allow you to secure a place in the event.

In order to maintain social distancing, entries for XBourne will be limited to 300 competitors, and we expect places to sell out once entries open. The first 300 people who pre-register will be guaranteed a place and will be given a priority entry window before entries are opened up to everyone.

Swim 1,000m

A straight 1,000m swim up the tidal estuary at the beautiful Cuckmere Haven. The swim will head up the river but with a high tide there will be negligible current. The close proximity of the riverbank will make for a great spectator friendly swim.



Mountain Bike 22km

The bike route will follow the official “red route” in Friston Forest for two laps totalling approximately 22km. This is a challenging course with some tough climbs, but is not overly technical making it accessible to less experienced mountain bikers. Approximately 420m (1,380ft) elevation.
