Route information
The swim route is a 375m lap that the Super Sprint competitors complete once, and Sprint competitors will take on twice. Swimmers can expect a couple of waves if the surf is up.
From here, it's a short and steep climb onto the cliff coast road all the way to the turn point at Hengistbury Head and back, totalling 11.7k. Sprint competitors will take it on twice. There is a 10mph speed limit on the promenade.
This completely flat run is a quick and simple out and back along the seafront. In keeping with the other legs, Sprint competitors will complete 2 laps to reach their 5k distance.
The transition area is in front of the shower/toilet block and event registration.
