Nelson Mandela Bay - September 2024

Transition is at Pollok Beach and the swim is a one-way swim starting at Hobie Beach (1.2km walk from transition) and finishing at Pollok Beach. The Run Route has also changed slightly because exclusive use of the public cycle path isn't allowed so we've moved the entire run to the road, making it MORE spectator friendly and more spacious for the runners. The run now becomes a 6 lap race as shown.

2km SWIM

One way swim between Hobie Beach and Pollok Beach. It'll be a walk to the start (start time is 07h30 so please allow sufficient time to get there). 

The People's 60 and People's 30 events will START and FINISH their swim at Pollok Beach 08h15. Their swim will be approximately 1km (2 laps) and 500m (1 lap) off Pollok Beach as below
