The GoTri Super-Sprint race comprises of a 2k run - 10k cycle - 1k run
Start Time 11:00
The run route for all races has changed
Because of maintenance work on the Millennium Bridge, the footbridge just before the finish, we have had to re-position the finish. This has meant re-working the run routes in order to accommodate the new finish area. It has meant
First Run - 1 lap, mass start on closed road, run in clockwise direction around course, starting on Riverside Road follow this into North Shore Road cross the Infinity Bridge and continue to the roundabout at University Blvd. Turn right and continue on the pavement along University Blvd to the next roundabout where you turn right again to cross the Princess of Wales Bridge towards the transition area. Once over the river follow the footpath looping right down onto the riverside path and follow the route to the transition area.

Bike laps:- Counting your laps is no feasible for us with so many and often on different laps, you will have to count them yourself. The best method is to use a bike speedo, 3 laps of 3.8k (2.36 miles). So when you are beyond 8k ( 4.75 miles) you are on your last lap.
