The Course

Swim Course: a combination of 1000m & 750m anticlockwise laps of the lake, keeping the swim buoys on your left. The lake is gravel filtered and approximately 6 metres deep, weed is usually not too much of a problem but during long bouts of hot weather this can appear in pockets. Typically, the temperature at this event is around 15-17°C.

Venue Information

Its size and shape allow for some great spectating at all our events here and provides a base for triathletes wishing to take part in a medium sized event on a flat profile. It’s a compact event site so you can see most of the action without having to walk too far.
