Route information
Swim
The swim stage is lake based with wave starts of approximately 100 competitors. There is a simple loop (depending on distance) with a separate water entry and exit point. The large wave starts mean this is certain to be an exciting event throughout! Transition is a short jog along the grass track and is centrally placed to ensure that there will be plenty of places for supporters to cheer everybody on!
Bike
The bike route is a simple anticlockwise loop making its way around Fritton Lake. Three left turns mean it is a fast course with simple navigation.
Run
An enclosed grass track route takes the form of a horseshoe in shape and makes its way from transition towards the woods. The route then bends back towards the lake before the turn point which brings runners back around the curve. Competitors will compelte a number of laps (one for Super Sprint, two Spring, three Standard), with the turn point near transition and race central. On the final lap the finish is alongside race control where everyone can enjoy a well earned rest!
