Any start time sent before the event is provisional.

Please be honest when you tell us your expected swim time; use your last 400m time, or your average 100m time as a guide.

Swim

The swim is 400 metres in a newly opened 25-metre pool. You will have one of our team to count your lengths and they'll give you a clear signal when you're done.

If you want to overtake someone please do so; just tap the person’s feet in front of you to let them know. If you get a tap please allow the swimmer behind to overtake you.

Run

When you've finished your swim you'll be guided by our team of marshals to transition and the start of the run.

The run is 1 lap. Its out and back across multi terrain including trails so remember to bring trail shoes if its wet.
