This distance can be raced as an INDIVIDUAL or as a TEAM of 2 or 3 where each person completes one or two legs.
You’ll love it because you start from a white sandy beach, the water’s warm (around 29 degrees), the protected bay offers excellent visibility (you may even spot a few colourful fish!) and there are no currents or swell. It’s like swimming in your own private pool!
New in 2019, it will be a rolling swim start, split by estimated swim time. Reducing bottlenecks, providing a safer and more enjoyable experience for all.
Participants will complete 1 lap of a triangular 1.9km swim course, with marker buoys every 50m.
The swim start and finish are in close proximity to the transition area and event venue.
The unique one-lap course meanders anti-clockwise through the north-western part of the island. You’ll love the villages full of enthusiastic flag-waving spectators, and enjoy the scenery as it changes from lush, dense green forest to stunning open coastline.
Rolling hills inland are alternated with fast flat sections trailing the coast. The hills are short, nothing over 60m, but numerous. Total elevations is 700m. The roads are wide with mostly smooth tarmac and low rolling resistance.
The 2-lap run course winds through the manicured gardens of the Lagoi Bay development, around a pretty man-made lake and through a ‘green corridor’ of dense rain forest. The run takes place on mainly concrete tracks and tarmac roads and has aid stations approximately every 1.5km.
Seeing your fellow athletes on the out and back section at the far end of the run will provide some welcome cheer, as will the festive spectator zones along the course.
