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.

We are also given a free entry into the Big South East swim if you enter the 2017 Midnight Man before the 1st January. This will give you chance to race on the Midnight Man course. 




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 6th 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 2017 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 2017 London Region Half and Full distance Championships.

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