The sprint course consists of a 20k loop,  (20.3km exactly from transition). The first 12km is challenging with grinding climbs up to Woods Corner, before a fast decent through 6km of stunning Sussex lanes, then a final 400m climb bringing you back onto the North Trade Road which then back into Ashburnham Place.
The run course consists of a 5km loop, 1 loop for the sprint distance.
Underfoot conditions for the run course are solid, there are two short sections where the surface is slightly uneven and a couple of sections through a grassy meadow within the Ashburnham grounds. There is one climb of about 1km. Normal running trainers are appropriate.

Please note that Ashburnham Place is a Christian Retreat and not open to general admission. We do ask you don't enter the grounds and run. Ashburnham Place have been very supportive letting us use this amazing location for the triathlon.
