The swim leg – 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. Competitors should turn left around the buoy and swim parallel to the shore. They turn left again around a final marker buoy and then swim towards the beach. From the beach competitors follow the exit chute to transition. National Series and Super Series transitions are located on different sides, make sure you turn to the correct direction at the top of the beach exit chute.
The bike leg – 20km
Competitors will exit transition and head north along the coast road for a 20 km loop. This brings them back into transition along the coast road from the South.
This is a flat course through lovely countryside with a maximum elevation of 50 m. All junctions are left turns.
The cycle route will be entirely on closed roads. However, we remind competitors that the rules of the road still apply and that a closed road may still have some local traffic on it.
The run leg – 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.
