2019 Race Brief

Swim Route

The sprint distance swim is 750m. Sprint distance swimmers will go out and follow a diamond shape route.

The try a triathlon – 200m. This swim distance will start further down the beach. At no stage should competitors in the beginners 200 meter distance be more than 2m from the shoreline.

Cycle Route

Cyclists will do 4 laps of the course and then cyclists will return back through Charlesland and turn right at the Mill Road roundabout, heading back toward Greystones and taking a sharp left turn up park lane (same as swim run up into the park)

Run Route

The run will start from Burnaby Park and onto the beachfront walkway. It will continue along the Coast Road towards the harbour around the harbour and will head out to each turret of the harbour then with a brief section on the north beach and back along the usual cliff walk route and run all the way back along the coast, finishing in the park.

Race Stewards and Course Safety

There will be race stewards at all major turns and junctions to marshal vehicular traffic and assist competitors, however, it is advised that competitors visit the route before race day to familiarise themselves with the route. We would be happy to go through the route with people should they require it.  You must have a proper bicycle helmet for the cycle and abide by all the rules of the road. The roads will be open to other traffic so keep your eyes open.

Water Safety

The Coast Guard boat will be on duty along the race course and we will have safety kayaks in the water. There will be extra kayakers along the 200 meter beginners course and at no time should competitors in the 200 meter course be further than 2m from the shore. Exact start locations for the swim will be announced at the race briefing and will be pending tides on the morning.
