ROUTE FOR 2016: *** 3 LAPS ***
The route exit transition from the South West corner and runs along the avenue for 50m before turning down to the park exit and across the suspension bridge. The route then turns left onto Lower Park Road, then enters the meadows and continues on the right fork to the T Junction, continue to the right and continue past the Olympic Distance turnaround point, at the path junction continue on the path alongside the river on grass for approx 750km until you get to a bench, turn through 270 degrees on a well made path for 500m to the turnaround point (timing point), head back the same way you came until you meet the Olympic turnaround point then continue as the Olympic route along the riverside path under the suspension bridge, past Salmon Leap and onto the Old Dee Bridge. Cross the bridge then turn right onto The Groves. For the first two laps proceed past the finish area and back onto the suspension bridge, on your third lap enter the finish chute on The Groves. We will have distance markers every 5km.
There is a drinks station (water only) as you enter the meadows (1km, 8km, 15km), there is a water and gel station (High 5 Iso Gels) at the turnaround point, (3.5km, 8.5km, 17.5km)
Due to us having to open the roads in the City Centre the following Cut off times are in operation:
Lap 1 of the bike must be completed by 10:30, anyone not completing the first lap by this time will be directed into transition where they may complete the run if they wish.
Lap 2 of the run must be completed by 14:15, anyone not on their final lap by this time will be directed to the finish line.
Unfortunately these cut off times are necessary to allow the roads to re-open on time.
No refunds will be given to people who do not make the cut offs.
