Sprint distance athletes will complete 1 loop of the course and Olympic distance athletes will complete 2 loops. Water safety marshals will be present both on shore and with motorised boats and canoes. Please note this is a tidal river and will be more challenging than a typical open water or pool swim.

Maldon Triathlon Promenade Park Swim 2012

Cycle (Sprint 28km / Olympic 45km)

The cycle course takes athletes out of Promenade Park and onto the quiet scenic roads of the Dengie Peninsula. Here you will pass through small towns and villages with traditional weatherboard homes and experience a fast and flat course over the marshes. Sprint distance athletes will complete a shorter loop than Olympic distance athletes.

Rules:

NO DRAFTING! Triathlon is an individual effort and drafting is cheating. Please keep a 7m gap from the cyclist in front of you. No side by side riding.
The cycle course takes place on public roads. Observe the rules of the road. Keep to the left when not overtaking, do not cross the centre line and give way at junctions.
An approved cycle helmet must be worn with your bike in road worthy condition or you will not be allowed to race.
This is a British Triathlon Federation sanctioned event. Please make sure you are familiar with BTF rules before racing.

Run (Sprint 5km / Olympic 10km)

The run course is situated around the beautiful Promenade Park. Here spectators can enjoy the setting whilst watching the triathlon. There are all kinds of facilities for adults and children with plenty of cafes lining the route. Sprint distance athletes will complete 2 laps with Olympic distance athletes completing 4 laps. The majority of the course is paved but there is a section on grass and trail. Promenade Park and The Hythe are extremely popular destinations, especially at the weekend, this will provide plenty of support but please be careful of people crossing the run route and always listen to marshals instructions... they have given up their time for your benefit.
