COURSE DESCRIPTION

Ultimate Forster starts with a 2 lap, 2km swim in the calm waters of Pipers Creek. The bike is an 80km course through the rolling hills of outer Forster, heading towards Booti Booti National Park and turning around in Charlotte Bay. Competitors will then turn around and head back towards Forster Keys before turning around for their second lap near The Lakes Way roundabout. A predominately flat 2 lap run course follows, through the suburban streets of Forster Keys. Competitors will exit transition and do a lap around Elouera Crescent, then turning left at Guy Avenue and continuing along King George Parade. Turning left at Victor Avenue and following Murray Avenue to the Lakes Way and crossing the road. The run will then follow Cape Hawke Drive until a left turn up along Panorama Crescent and back down to Cape Hawke Drive. Following the marked course, competitors will then turn around in Carmona Drive and follow the same track back down to King George Parade and follow the street back down to transition. Competitors starting their second lap will continue down Elouera Crescent while competitors finishing will run straight into the finish chute adjacent to transition.
