Both legs of the run route will take place on the waterfront footpath.
The first run for all athletes is 5km and will be one out and back route.
The second leg of the route the sprint athletes will follow the same 5k route as the first run. Super sprint athletes will turn at an earlier point to complete the 3k course.
Both distances will finish opposite Verdi's cafe. There will be a red carpet to receive your medal.
Please keep to the left hand side of the promenade at all times and respect other path users.
The bike route will be along public roads and highways where you can expect to share the road with other users. Both the sprint and super sprint routes will be heavily sign-posted. You can familiarise yourself with the final route when the race pack is sent to you prior to the event.
