The images below shows all the courses for the weekend; the swimming, cycling and running course.

The expected water temperature is between 19 and 22 degrees celcius.  Athletes will swim one lap of 400m.

This is followed by one lap of cycling on the Motor way as shown below. This is a flat asphalt surface and not a technical route which will most likely result in a high pace.

The athletes will then go on to run two two laps of 1250m each. This too will be done on a flat asphalt road. The athletes will have the opportunity to collect some water at the beginning of each run lap but can enjoy a wider range of drinks and snacks in the finish area.
