Waves are set off at 10 minute intervals from 07:00 with most waves sizes kept less than 100. The river is about 80m wide for the whole course so there is plenty of room for all.

The course then follows Eton road out to Eccleston, through Pulford, Rossett before heading east through Borras Head and Borras, it then drops onto the new fast Wrexham Industrial Estate Relief Road before heading back to Chester along Sibberfield Lane and Chester Road. Upon arriving at Sandy Lane a single lane will be closed to traffic for the return to Grosvenor Park through Boughton.

The route then turns left onto Lower Park Road, then enters the meadows and continues on the right fork to the T Junction, continue to the right for approximately 150m to the turn around point (make sure you cross the timing mat). The route the returns along the riverside path under the suspension bridge, past Salmon Leap and onto the Old Dee Bridge. Cross the bridge then turn right onto The Groves.
