The standard course consists of a 2 x 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 2 x 5km loop within the ashburnham grounds, nearly all on solid  trails around the grounds with a 800m grass section. There is one tough hill in the run, around 250m long and steep, which is becoming quite iconic! The run course may be altered slightly if weather conditions are very wet leading into race day. The run is ideal for spectators with many points to cheer your athletes on.

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.
