General Notes  

  • All turning corners on the bike will have Traffic Management and will have cones marking a turning lane for you to use.  There will be marshals with fluro vests on at all turning corners - if you pass corners with no cones and no marshal  - keep going straight ahead. 

  • Take the time to look at the course maps and know where you are going.  Although we have marshals on every turning corner please understand that they are there for your safety, not to direct you on the course. It is your responsibility to know the course.

  • The distances are as accurate as we can get them using public roads etc.  They may vary slightly on the day.  

  • Due to the construction of the new pool at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre the transition this year will be in the sealed car park
