The swim is a thirty length swim in a 25m pool (750m). There will be 8 starts, 6 lanes and 6 people per lane. The slowest wave will be let start first. With two lengths to go each competitor will be tapped by the lane counter to signify your last 2 lengths. The transition is in the pool car park just outside the pool.
The cycle is an out and back course, 20km in length. You turn right as you exit the leisure centre and cycle out to the turnaround point just before the village of Toomevara. There are 2 roundabouts to be negotiated (twice); take the second exit on both; but each will be heavily marshalled. The new M7 has reduced traffic on this route considerably. It is a super fast, flat bike route.
The run is a 5.24km run course. You turn right as you exit the leisure centre and run 0.5 mile down the road before taking a left onto the Cloughjordan Road. After another 0.5 mile you take another left. This brings you onto a hilly run section which lasts for a mile. You turn left on the Old Birr Road and head back towards town. Turn left onto Summerhill road and another left into the grounds of the CBS school. The finish line is on the running track beside the school.
