There has been a massive increased demand for the Standard Distance Triathlon (previously know as Olympic). With the increasing exposure through the ITU race series and a generally growing base of athletes we have seen races sell out in hours.
The swim leg will be held in the Shoalhaven River with a deep water start. The exit to transition will be adjacent to the sailing club.
The cycle leg will be two laps of a flat, out and back course. From the transition area (at the western end of Riverview Rd) competitors will head east to Numbaa via Terara along Riverview Rd, Ferry Ln, Terara Rd, Comerong Island Rd and then right onto Jindy Andy Ln. Just past Smiths Ln on Jindy Andy Ln will be the first turnaround point. At this point, competitors will turn around and head back along the same route until they reach the next turnaround point just prior to the transition area where they will turnaround and complete their second lap, as per the first lap. On completion of the second lap they will ride to the dismount area, dismount and then head into transition.
The run course is a two lap, and mostly flat course. From transition competitors will head west along the path, under and then onto the new Nowra bridge. At the northern end of the bridge competitors will continue up the path towards the first turnaround point. At this point competitors turnaround and return to the southern end of Nowra bridge via the same route. At the southern end of the bridge, competitors swing right then left onto the foot path and run past the Nowra Pool and Rowing Club for a lap around Paringa Park. Then continuing back along the same path, under the bridge, keeping left along the rivers edge, past the Sailing club and then competitors will veer off the path for a short period as they pass the finish line. Competitors will be guided back onto and continue along the eastern end of the path and then right onto Ferry Lane to the next turnaround point just prior to the Riverview Rd intersection. They then do a U turn and head back along the same route towards the finish line, where they will again be guided around the finish line for the completion of the first of two (2) laps. The second lap is as per the first lap except that on completion of their second lap they will cross the finish line. See course map for detail.
