The swim triathlon consists of a 680m swim, 20km mountain bike and 10km run.
Athletes begin their race at Hans Bay, swimming in a triangle formation out from the Hans Bay boat ramp, inside the islands and back to the shore. Exiting the water, athletes run through the timing chute, and cyclists then cycle up the sealed road, turning right onto Milltown Road which is gravel. Cycling for approximately 9.4km, turning at a marked point, and back to the timing chute at Hans Bay. Once through the timing chute, athletes run up the sealed road, turning right onto Wards Road. Running down the gravel, athletes take a right turn onto the Water-race track, running through here, then left onto the sealed road, back to Hans Bay for the finish line.
We do recommend cyclists use Mountain Bikes or Gravel Bikes for this event.
