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.

BIKE

The open road bike course will see you head out of Woking to Mayford where you will complete one or two laps of our scenic looped circuit around Mayford, Fox Corner and Worplesdon.

Other then a few cheeky inclines the course is largely flat and fast on mostly quiet country roads.

RUN

The run is based in Woking Park and features a largely fast albeit twisty course within the park. The course used is 80% tarmac and 20% trail along hard packed good paths.

As a lapped course you’ll pass through the central part of the park several times presenting a great opportunity for support from friends, family and club matters.

Booking system was easy, the briefing on Saturday helped with the early start. Marshalls were friendly, transition and course well laid out. Will definitely be back."
