The date for the 2017 Midnight Man will be the 12th/13th August 

After a 2 hour meeting with Kent Highways we have been given the all clear to do it all over again. On line entry’s are now open for the 2017 Midnight Man Triathlon.

A big thank you to everyone that took part in the 2016 Midnight Man Triathlon. I finished packing everything away Tuesday afternoon. A long hard week but worth all the effort. I would like to thank everyone that helped through the night. With out them the event would never take place. We need 2 more people to take on very import jobs on the night. If you are happy to get involved can you please contact me.

All the photos are now on our Facebook page.


The 5th Midnight will take place on the 13th/14th August 2016 News Update 10/8/2016  Only 3 days to go

The race brief has now been sent out and posted above. We cant now change the start list. If you have any problems we can sort them out on the day.

We still have a few places left for the 2016 Midnight Man Triathlon.

On line entry’s are now closed but we can still fit you in if you email me today. I will not be sending the start list to the timing company till late this evening. I will need your full name age, club, and the race you want to take part in. I move on site Thursday morning.

Unfortunately you will need lights on your bike if you are going to be riding after 8.45pm. They are now turning of the lights on part of Bob Dunn way. I will post a map on the web site by the weekend to show you where there are no lights. 


We are also pleased to say that there is no price increase for the 5th Year running. So we are still the cheapest Long distance Triathlon in the UK. We are also the first night time triathlon in the world.  

On top of all that we are also the only 100% closed road bike course in the Uk.

Only £160 entry for the full, £90 for the half and £55 for the quarter. 

We are giving out 10 Free Charity places into the 2016 Midnight Man. All you need to do is raise £500 for any charity in 2016. Contact us for more information.

The Midnight Man is also the 2016 London Region Half and Full distance Championships.
