Standard Triathlon (Olympic)

The courses are very picturesque and flat in and around Morpeth and Duckenfield.

The swim enters the water at Morpeth Boat Ramp off Queens Wharf Rd, Morpeth and swims to a start point on the other side of the river. Swimmers will swim up the left side of the river and swim under the historic Morpeth Bridge and then turn right at a turn buoy and swim to another buoy just 25m away and turn right again to return to the boat ramp and exit the water. There will be 4-5 waves of swimmers.

Cycle 40km

The cycle leg leaves transition and rides left onto Swan St. This is a stiff short rise, so riders should start in a high gear. The course proceeds the length of Swan St. Riders have right of way at the bridge STOP sign. The bridge side of Swan St is closed to traffic until Robert St. The course then returns to roads that are open to resident traffic only. We will have traffic controllers in several locations to manage any local traffic and give riders right of way where required. Riders then turn right onto Edward St and proceeds onto Duckenfield Rd which links with Martins Wharf Rd and turn left into Edithville Rd and right into Cross Rd (repairs to be made) and left into Manerys and then right into Prices Rd. Riders turn around on Prices Rd before Raymond Terrace Rd and heads back using Manery's to access a left turn onto Martins Wharf Rd and then turn at the school and return until turning left and along Scotch Creek Rd until a turn point and then returns to Duckenfield Rd and continues to the McFarlanes Rd intersection. Then riders turn left and head along McFarlanes Rd until a turn around point. They then return along McFarlanes Rd and then left into Edward St, Swan St until Tank St and return to the bike compound via Queens Wharf Rd. Riders will reenter the right hand side of Swan St at Robert St. Note there are sections of the course that are no overtaking zones. Note: Road works on McFarlanes Rd will be assess closer to the event.

Hunter podiatry Run 10km

The run leg leaves the bike compound and runs into Steamer St, which is an unused road just 50m from the compound that is partly gravel and partly grass. There is some uneven ground for the first 500m, so pay attention. There is plenty of even ground to run on. Steamer St comes out onto Morpeth Rd and runners will be directed to the right hand side of the road (which is closed and separated on one side) and run a further 300m to turn right into Brush Farm Rd. This road is closed to traffic and you will run to the end of Brush Farm Rd and then turn into Pitnacree Rd and run to a turn point. The run course is very flat. There will be 2 drink stations out and back. The course finishes on the bank of the Hunter River. If viewing the elevation map, it may look like a hill at the start and finish. this is just teh maps picking up a cliff above the start area. It is all flat.
