Athlete smust turn left into Ocean Reef Road and cycle North until they reach the first bike turn just before Shenton avenue where signage and a course marshal will indicate the bike turn. At this turn athletes then return South along the same route back to Tom Simpson Park at Mullaloo Beach. On return to Mullaloo Beach the bike course continues past the front entrance to the Dome restaurant and just beyond that point is the South bike turn. Athletes turn at this point and cycle North past Tom Simpson Park again (Sprint distance x2 laps) for their 2nd lap.
Both SunSmart Kids and Bolt athletes will turn Left into the parking area at Tom Simpson Park until the dismount line. Sprint athletes completing x2 laps would return and turn Left into the parking area at Tom Simpson Park for T2 transition after completion of their 2nd lap.
Important Note - On approach to the South bike turn opposite the Dome restaurant, athletes must slow down and keep left if they will be entering transition and keep right if they are proceeding to their second bike lap. To enter T2 (transition) veer left into the Surf club carpark as directed by the course marshals.
The run leg is a single lap (1 x lap) out and back lap for all race distances of:
SunSmart Kids (Tin Lids) - is is an out and back lap of 500m in total.
Bolt - Novice & SunSmart Junior athletes and Duathlon (1st Run leg) athletes - 1km out and 1km return

After exiting transition athletes head North on the recreation path as directed by course marshals to their respective turnaround points before returning on the same path.
