The Swim – 750m
The swim will begin with a running beach start. As with all beach starts, this involves a combination of dolphin diving and swimming as competitors make their way towards the first marker buoy. They will turn left around the bouy and swim parallel to the shore until finally turning left again around a final marker buoy before returning to the beach and heading for transition.
The Bike – 20km
Competitors will exit transition and head north along the coast road for a 20 km loop bringing them back into transition along the coast road from the South.
This is a nice flat course through lovely countryside with a maximum elevation of 50 m and all junctions are left turns.
The cycle route will be entirely on closed roads. However, competitors are reminded that the rules of the road still apply and that a closed road may still have some vehicles on it.
The Run – 5km
Competitors will exit transition and run along a closed road for 2.5km. They will turn around at this point and continue back down to the finish line at the coast.
There is a slight climb from sea level to about 30m elevation at the turning point which means the last half is a nice downhill to the finish.
