The pool is 25 metres long, tumble turns are not allowed. Children will be started at 20 second intervals in the pool. The swim course is very straight forward and there will be a verbal briefing prior to each child starting. A swim cap will be given to each child and must be worn. Children may use their own swim cap instead if preferred.
The cycle and run courses are fairly flat and entirely on grass and completely post & taped and within the grounds of the school. The whole of the bike & run course will be post and taped, making it very easy to navigate for the children.
Parents/guardians, if you have a wristband, you are allowed into the cycle transition areas with your children to help them. The whole of the bike & run course is on hard compact grass, as well as being inside the school grounds, making it safe for the children.
