Standard/Olympic Triathlon

The course is designed to showcase the best aspects of the Newcastle Foreshore. The Race compound and bike compound are located around Queens Wharf off Wharf Rd. This includes Sports Expo, stage and finish line. First race starts at 6.45am. Note the bike course does climb King Edward Park only 5 times and is otherwise flat or downhill.

Swim leg

1500m

The 1500m Swim will start just east of Queens Wharf and swim 750m east towards Nobbys Beach and then return to Queens Wharf. You will exit on a scaffold ramp just east of the Wharf. Start times may be slightly delayed due to ship movements. Note the tide is going low at start time and there should be no flow either way. You may have a slight current one way or another if a ship passes.

Cycle leg

5 x 7.4km

Competitors will pick up their bikes and head east towards Nobbys Beach along Wharf Rd. We have permission to use the new Horseshoe Beach section of road. This will be a left turn on a very wide new piece of roadway. You will only use this on the way out, not the way back. You then proceed along Shortland Esplanade towards Newcastle Beach. Riders should take care with the raised speed mounds along this section. Riders then continue up Shortland Espl and turn left into the South Newcastle Beach Cliff and into King Edward Park . They then head up into King Edward Park. Once in the park the course is flat again and then climbs another 600 m to the top of the park. Cyclists then turn right onto the right hand side of The Terrace and then right onto Reserve Rd. Riders then head down Watt St and turn right at Church St onto Shortland Esplanade. (Please approach this corner with caution and this is a no passing zone to allow safe turning on a difficult camber) They then return to the compound and then complete 4 more laps. 5 laps in total.
