The event includes an open water swim of approximately 900m starting with a run off the beach, out to to the bouy 1, across to bouy 2 and back to the beach. That would not be so bad if there was’nt then that punishing run up the hill to transition in the Driftwood Spars car park.
The bike route is a relatively painful uphill climb out of St. Agnes across to Porthtowan, through Wheal Rose, up Blackwater Hill with a nice fast return through Teagle Straight, all the way through the village and back to transition.
The run begins with a climb (I mean ‘climb’) up Rocky Lane which then continues up and up and up to the top of the beacon before a lovely downhill stretch back through the village and finish.
