Route description
Route description

To kick-off the day, racers will swim from Blackpool Sands, a sheltered inlet that makes for a stunning open-water swim. Once you are out of the water there's a short run up the beach through transition and onto the bikes. The bike route includes a few undulating hills but nothing too strenuous.

After-which it's off the bikes and onto your feet with four laps making up a 5k run (2 laps for the Supersprint).

If you aren't as confident or you are just starting out then there is the option to do the Super Sprint, which reduces the run and swim portions.

See the following link to sign up for the swimming events the same weekend here.
