NEWS UPDATE 08/09/2017

The 2018 Midnight Man will take place on the 11th/12th August.

We have been told by kent highways in writing that they can’t see there being any problems in closing the roads. Entries are now live 

Unfortunately everything has gone up in price every year since we started. For the first time since we started (7 years) there will be a very small price increase to help cover this extra cost.

Don’t worry we are still be the best value Long Distance Triathlon in the world


Race day help

We would like to thank everyone who has contacted me about helping at the Bridge Triathlon on the 17th June. We now have 9 Triathletes that will be helping on the day. We still need 4 people that can help at the Midnight Man Triathlon 2018. If you can help please let me know. In return we can give you in £100 in free entries into any of our other events. Don’t panic we don’t expect you to say there all night. It will only be for 8 hours and you will get a few breaks during the evening.


A big thank you to everyone that took part in the 2017 Triathlon. I would also like to thank everyone that helped on the night. You were all amazing and made my job a lot easier. So for this reason we will be doing all over again in 2018. I would also like to thank Dartford Council for all there help. Crosswaters for letting us use their car park.

Due to safety issues all 2017 races will be wet suit swims only. You can also only use an official swimming wet suit not a Surfing or Diving wet suit.  Unfortunately if the water temperature goes over 24 degrees it will be a no wet suit swim  

Sorry but you will also need to have done open water swimming before you can take part in this race.
