13km Mountain Bike
Kicking the race off with a Le Mons start, riders get up to speed on some rolling 4WD tracks and roads before sampling the single track of Brown Street and the Dunsborough Country Club on your way to the water’s edge at Dunn Bay.
1.2km Ocean Swim
Splashing through crystal-clear water in a protected corner of the coast, this is a magical swim that’ll knock the pool for six.
5km Ocean Paddle
The Meelup Regional Park coastline is amongst the favourite of all West Australia’s and this paddle reveals a few of its secrets. Flat water, protected bays and remaining in close reach of the shoreline, this is a paddle that everyone will enjoy.
7.9km Brooks Trail Run
Following the popular coastal path mixed a bit of rock hopping along the way and you’ll be smiling all the way to the bar.
250m Finish Sprint to the line
Bring it home together with a gallop across the paddocks to finish in front of the bar. Life doesn’t get any better.
This consolidated course has just one (mega) transition area on Vincent Street in Dunsborough. Teams can watch the race unfold (and wait for their turn!) with music, food and an awesome atmosphere for all.
