Swim Course

750 Metres

The swim is a very simple route. Starting at the boat house end of the lake you will swim straight down the lake towards the Tower where you’ll then make a left turn to swim straight across the lake before making a 2nd left turn to swim straight back to exit the lake under the Swim Exit Gantry.

Bike Course

19 KM

The bike course is flat and as fast as you want it to be – but watch out for the corners!  Keeping the lake on your left, you will complete 4 laps of the lake before dismounting to head into transition.

Run Course

5 KM

The run route will test your legs on a single 5km loop which will take you around the lake, before finishing down the orange carpet back in front of the Grandstand.
