Staring at Mullaloo beach, athletes will navigate a 2 x lap course (1 x lap for Novice & Junior Bolt race). Athletes will need to exit the water after lap 1 before navigating lap 2.
The bike course comprises of a 3 x lap course leaving Tom Simpson Park. For the bike leg, after exiting transition for the cycle leg athletes turn left into Oceanside Promenade (Sprint and Duathlon turn Right heading South) and continue North past Mullaloo beach along Oceanside Promenade. After passing Mullaloo beach it continues north along Oceanside Promenade and then turns left into Ocean Reef Road continuing north until just before the Ocean Reef Boat Harbour. The course turns before the Ocean Reef Boat Harbour entrance and returns South along the same route on the south bound left hand lane. On return to Mullaloo Beach the bike course continues past in a Southern direction along Northside Drive and then Whitfords Avenue before turning just before Hillary’s Beach Park (Whitford Nodes) location. Athletes continue then return route to Mullaloo Beach past Tom Simpson Park for the next lap. After competing the third lap, athletes return to the transition area turning left into the Mullaloo Surf Club car park to transition for the run leg.
Sprint/Duathlon athletes exit transition and turn right into Oceanside Promenade and continue in a Southern direction turning just before Hillary's Beach Park (Whitford Nodes) and returning to Mullaloo Beach before continuing to do a full lap as with the standard distance (Mulallo-OceanReef-Mullaloo-Hillarys-Mullaloo-T2).
Bolt (Junior and Novice) athletes exit transition North the same direction as the Standard distance but turn early after around 1.5km before returning to do a 3/4 loop to Hillary's and returning to T2 at Mullaloo Beach.
The run leg is a two lap (2 x lap) out and back lap of 2.5km out and 2.5km return. For Novice/Junior Bolt and Duathlon (1st lap) it's 1km out and back. After exiting transition athletes head North on the recreation path and follow the path all the way past Mullaloo beach to the turnaround point before Ocean Reef Boat Harbour returning on the same path. The course offers a spectacular scenic run with no traffic exposure. Staging the event and run on the pathway north to Mullaloo beach as a lap course will provide a good event experience for both competitors and spectators. But you will be tested as their is a short sharp climb each way on each lap otherwise it's a fast run!
Sprint and Duathlon do the same run leg (1 x lap) as their last leg after the Bike-T2 exit.
