The event takes place on the main promenade with the sea swim just to the left of the 'Surf Reef'. Swimmers can expect a couple of waves but nothing too worrying!
It is a 375m swim lap that is done once for the super sprint (375m) and twice for the sprint (750m)
The transition area is in front of the shower / toilet block with a 150 meter bike out on to the Boscombe beach roundabout, It’s then a short but steep climb out and onto the over cliff coast road to the turn point at Hengistbury Head for the super sprint it is 1 lap (11.7km) and for the sprint it is 2 laps (23.4km).
The run is as flat as a pancake and is a simple out and back along the seafront promenade again it is 1 lap (2.5km) for the Super Sprint and 2 Laps (5km) for the Sprint.
Both the Super sprint distance race and the Sprint distance race are open to teams of 3. Each team member completes a discipline in succession. You must inform the staff at registration that you are a team entry as you will have specific instructions for handing the chip between team members.
