RACE SEQUENCE
For this event the race sequence is swim/bike/run.
 
 
SWIM COURSE:
 
The swim leg will be held at the Opunake Pool. It is a 25 metre indoor heated pool. Participants should attempt to complete the swim without stopping or walking. Swim aids are not permitted for the swim (e.g; Fins/Snorkels/Pull buoys etc)
 
  • Short Course - Participants will swim two (2) x six (6) lengths of the pool (a total of 12 lengths). This means that after swimming six (6) lengths, participants exit the pool and return to the start lane to swim the remaining six (6) lengths.
  • Long Course - Participants will swim four (4) x six (6) lengths of the pool (a total of 24 lengths). This means that after swimming six (6) lengths, participants exit the pool and then swim another three (3) sets of six (6) lengths.

It is important that participants have trained for the swim. Once the swim is complete participants will exit the pool area via the side door and head out towards transition and tag their runner/walker (teams only) or proceed on to the run course until they have met the distance and cross the finish line to complete the event.

 
CYCLE COURSE:
 
The cycle is an out and back course heading up Ihaia Rd. There will be a marshall at the turnaround point for both the short and long course.
 
  • Short Course – For the short course, you will cycle 6km to the midway point and turn around and return to transition (a total of 12kms).
  • Long course – For the long course, you will cycle 12km to the midway point and turn around and return to transition (a total of 24kms).
After completing the ride, the participant will rack their bike and commence the run leg of the triathlon.
 
RUN COURSE:
 
One lap of the run course is two and a half kilometres (3.0km).
 
  • Short Course – For the short course, you will walk/run one (1) lap of the run course (a total of 3.0kms).
  • Long course – For the long course, you will walk/run two (2) laps of the run course (a total of 6.0kms).
The run course will be marshalled however you must ensure that you view the course map and know the course. After you complete your walk/run, you enter the finish area and make your way to the finish chute to complete the event. We encourage all team members to cross the finish line together.
 
Please refer to Run Course map that will be available here soon. 

You will receive a medal for completing the event.
