The area will be patrolled by motorised boats and paddle craft to assist you if you have difficulties during the swim.


The water temperature is expected to be in the range of 22-24°C.

Transition and the run

The transition and run start will be in Rodd Park. Runners will exit transition and turn right onto The Bay Run to follow the 7km path in a clockwise direction to finish back at Rodd Park.
