Course Details

Triathlon course
Swim 300m Bike 15km Run 5km
Swim 300 metres in Lake Hayes. This section will have a safety boat to provide backup, and a buoy will be put on the lake a week out if you want to train.

Swimmers are equally divided in two groups and swim towards a turn around buoy situated 150 meters from the shore, in order to avoid collisions at the start.

The bike section starts from the Lake Hayes grounds, through the internal paved bike lane onto the Arrowtown Lakes Hayes road towards Arrowtown. It turns left into Speargrass Flat Road, and then U turn to ride back to the Lake Hayes Showground.

The running section will be along the shore of Lake Hayes on the walking track, thus avoiding running on the road all together.

Duathlon course

Run 1.5km on Lake Hayes Track.
The rest of the course is the same as the triathlon above: bike on the Lake Hayes / Arrowtown Road, turn left into Speargrass Flat Road, ride 3.4 kms and U-turn to ride back to Lake Hayes. This section is mainly flat and course marshals will be on each corner to direct you; Run or Walk 5kms on Lake Hayes Track back to the finish line.
