Nelson Mandela Bay - 25th September 

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.
