Course Details

Standard ITU World Qualifying Race

Wollongong Standard set to SELL OUT QUICKLY! Set in such an amazing course so close to Sydney, its no surprise why this has been a long-time favourite of our athletes.

Last year’s race was almost a capacity field so this year the word is “get in early” as the opportunities to race the shores and streets of major metropolitan precincts are few and far between. All indications are that the Standard Distance Triathlon will be SOLD OUT early.

This event will be an ITU World qualifying race.

Swim 1.5km

The swim is a 2 lap course in the waters of Belmore Basin.

Bike 40km 

The 3 lap bike course takes you out of Transition and along Cliff Road, and if you get the change the most scenic view of the Illawarra coastline.

2 laps. As athletes exit transition to start the run they will turn right and run along Marine Drive footpath towards the WIN entertainment centre. Athletes will make their first turn just before the WIN entertainment centre and head back along Marine drive. Athletes will make their way towards the lighthouse on Flagstaff hill as they run along Endeavour Dr Athletes must keep on the footpath at all times as they continue behind the City Beach Function Centre (waterside), all the way past the WIN Entertainment Centre and turn around at the second turn point near the corner of Bank Street. Once turned at the second point athletes will make their way back the same way they came. Athletes will start their second lap once they have passed transition. On the second lap after passing transition athletes will make their way towards the 1st turn point where they will turn right and run across the grass towards the finish line.
