THIS IS A NON-DRAFTING RACE
From the start line close to the iconic Victorian Pier, your swim will head out into the Irish Sea at the warmest point of the year.
Back on dry land, the bike section will take you around four laps of Marine Drive, circumnavigating the Great Orme which is 2 miles long, 1 mile wide and rises 207 metres (679 feet) from the sea. The geology, wildlife, archaeology and landscape is of such importance that much of the headland has been designated a Special Area of Conservation, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Heritage Coast.
Once the challenging ups and downs of the Orme are behind you your run follows the line of the beach, completing three laps along the famous promenade with the lap point next to the popular paddling pool and lifeboat station. Make your way home cheered on by the supporters for a hero's welcome!
