Race course description for Triathlon and Duathlon events at Seven Mile Beach.
With the airport extension and realignment of Surf Road, which now veers onto a new road and exits out onto Holyman Drive, our usual 7 Mile Beach course from Day Use Area #1 is likely to be changed. Day Use Area #2 (or at least near here) provides the best option taking into consideration safety and transition management. The Committee are working hard to finalise all the logistics, and will provide an update when more information is available.
The Strategic State Sprint Championship Race Information Booklet 2017 provides some guidance to the general course, although this needs to be tweaked to take the road and transition changes into account.
The closure of Surf Road around Day Use Area #2 provides an opportunity to race on a truly closed road (at least until the Pittwater Road intersection). The Committee are keen to take advantage of this by looking at the opportunity to provide kids triathlon races (under 13’s) at this venue. More to come…
