The full 1000m swim will be done in walkable depth water and will consist of four 250m laps though the course will be set on the morning so may consist of fewer/longer laps. It is a beach start and spectacular beach finish! Photos will be taken and results captured.


I love that it was free and love how simple it was - all I brought was shoes and a swim suit!


Whoa, that was hard! There was no time on the bike to recover from the swim. 40 minutes all out - sweet :)
