The 1.9km swim kicks off in the mighty Clarence River, after completing the 2 lap swim in the calm waters of Clarence River participants mount their bikes and head out on the 90km course. This scenic flat bike leg will be sure to separate the field as you work your way south to Brushgrove, and back towards Maclean. The 3 lap 21.1km run course heads north, along River Road beside the Clarence River and then heads back to the finish line at the event hub where the day began.
