Please Note: Course is subject to change. The 56 mile bike leg remains a one lap course through the heart of the Staffordshire countryside with the most notable change the loss of a loop section at Six Roads End and Hanbury. The course continues to take athletes through the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but on the approach back to the second transition area, athletes will continue towards Stafford town centre through Great Haywood and Tixall where the second transition area will be located at Riverway.

The 13.1 mile course consists of three laps, taking athletes over and alongside the River Sow before heading into Stafford town centre.
