Leg 1. 3km paddle – Flyover and Map of Paddle Leg
The paddle route will only be decided on the day as it is totally dependent on the conditions we are faced with. If conditions are close to perfect then we will paddle the traditional 3km route around Schaapen Island, anything other than perfect conditions we will paddle around buoys parallel to the coastline. The course length will vary accordingly but will not be longer than 3km. In the event of extremely adverse weather conditions the paddle leg may be cancelled altogether.
Leg 2. 17km Cycle – Flyover and Map of Cycle Leg
The bike route will be exactly the same as the last few years, we will cycle a 2-lap route going out on the tar over the “Mamba” to the Park Gate where we will turn and come back either on the gravel “White Road” in front of The Farmhouse if you are on a MTB or on the tar back up the “Mamba” if you are on a road bike (or take your chances on the gravel), then back to the start/finish and then set-off for your identical 2nd lap.
Leg 3. 5km run – Flyover and Map of Run Leg
Run leg will be the usual 1 lap route to the turnpoint on the “White Road” where a refreshment table awaits you, then sprint/jog/walk back to the Smith Street finish.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday 10 December!
