The circumference of the island. Stunning scenery all the way round, mixed terrain and no lap run. The run for this event is effectively half a marathon in distance.

Cycle

The cycle takes competitors off The Island along scenic Essex country lanes and around Abberton Reservoir before heading back to the transition to begin the final leg.

This is a flat triathlon but the terrain is a mixture of road, sand and seawall making it a unique but challenging course.
