THE COURSE

The swim is based out of the competition pool at Pool in the Park in Woking. Operated by Freedom leisure this 6 lane competition pool provides the perfect environment for our event complete with a viewing gallery for spectators/supporters.

 

Your race day will see you start in the pool and completing 8 lengths in a snake style swim whereby you go up and down the same lane before passing under the rope into the next lane. You continue this 4 times until your out the pool.

For the Bike course is out onto the open roads for a short lapped course based around 4 roundabouts. All the roads are generally good in surface and with no major climbs its a short & easy/fast course.

The run is based in Woking Park where the swim is located so having to returned into transition you’ve got a nice run around the tarmac paths around the perimeter of the park. As a lapped course you’ll pass transition twice before heading up the finish line.
