There’s good reason that Forster is the home of Long Course Triathlon, it’s almost as though the town was built with triathlon in mind. The 2 lap, 2km swim in the calm and temperate waters off Forster Keys sets the stage for a great day of racing.The bike is a two lap 80km course that heads out on Lakes way towards Pipers Bay, passing Wallis Lake and continuing on past Blueys Beach and turning at Tarbuck Bay. The bike course has nice fast flat sections between Forster and Tiona before reaching a section of rolling hills as athletes approach the lap turnaround.
The run will see athletes take on a flat 2 lap course.
The local community really gets behind this event making Forster one of the more memorable finish lines on the Ultimate calendar.
