The event takes place on the beautiful sandy beach area just to the East of Southbourne. Swimmers can expect a couple of waves if the surf is up! The trendy beach area of Southbourne is just a short walk away for a post-race coffee and breakfast.
The transition area is in a corner of the large car park on hard standing.
It is a 375m swim lap that is done once for the super sprint (375m) and twice for the sprint (750m). Click for MAP
Turn left out of the car park, up and along the Overcliff drive to Boscombe. Turn at the roundabout and return to Hengistbury Head. For the super sprint, it is 1 lap (11.7km) and for the sprint, it is 2 laps (23.4km). 10mph speed limit on the promenade, please. Click for MAP
The run is as flat as a pancake and is along the seafront promenade. The Super Sprint is a 2.5km out and back and the Sprint is a 5km out and back. The 1st circa 200 meters is on the grass before the promenade and the finish is on the beach. Click for MAP
