Organisation of the transition area was really good and very clear. The city centre portion wasn’t as organised without enough crossing points to get close to the grandstand finishing area.… read more

Route description
Route description

This is a challenging course for all competitors. On Saturday, athletes will ride on an out and back course with a brief climb, with the remainder of the course largely flat. The run is gently rolling. On Sunday, competitors will ride the undulating out and back course, while the run climbs out of the park before a a descent into loops of the city centre. Both the run and cycle routes are held on completely closed routes.

This event is really well organised, which is expected from a triathlon that is also a World Series event. Great atmosphere, with everyone racing supporting each other - especially on the run. The crowds were also great, with loads of people coming out of their houses to cheer on the bike and everyone in the city centre for the last 2.5km of the run. Be warned it is a hilly course, both on the bike and run, but if you go up you must go down 💪🏻 Also look at the running route before you start and make sure you understand the city centre area! Would recommend the event!

Fairly well organised. Pleasant marshals. Mount/dismount line in a poor position. Crowd support minimal
