Swim Details - 750m
Same route as before, we're going for a beach start again and the tides are perfect.
There will be 80 per wave and these will be sorted by age-group (as per TI NS policy).
The route will be immediately in front of the beach at Claycastle, after a 250m swim out from the shore you'll be turning left and facing for town to swim 300m almost parallel to the shore. Listen to the briefing for some local knowledge & tips!
Last mark will be the turn for home, which will be clearly marked on the day by large floating booms.
Bike Details - 19km
Same route as last year, it's out and back to Killeagh on the flat and fast N25.
Once out of T1 you'll mount immediately and head out the gate and over the Railway Bridge - a no-race zone for safety.
Down the other side and turning left for Killeagh you're away - Race ON!
Run Details - 6.1km
It's onto the boardwalk to begin, then along Front Strand towards town. Cross the road at the old railway station before turning left at Clancy's. Next along MacCurtainstown and up onto the R634 by the tennis courts.
Out to Summerfield Cross and turning left to return to Claycastle - but you're not done yet, It's past Aura Leisure Centre and the Pitch & Putt with a bit of a pull, yep...a second lap of The Strand to get you 6.1K in all.
The finish line is just inside the barrier at Claycastle, behind the dismount line. Go On - Give it Everything!
The Pipe shown is a rainwater drain from the bog behind the car park !
