The swim will start at Uncle Tom's Cabin in Shoeburyness and is an out and back route in the Estuary. It is a 750m swim and will stay fairly close to the shore so less experienced or less confident open-water swimmers won't need to worry. The swimmers will be released in waves based upon predicted race times so there will not be too many people kicking around in the water at the same time.

The bike will take place on closed roads and is an out and back route along the seafront making it very spectator-friendly; your friends and family will be able to line the streets and cheer you on as you pass them several times. The road will be closed to traffic on the day and is pancake flat so it is the perfect opportunity to have an uninterrupted and searingly fast ride.

The run will be a beautiful, scenic stride through Gunner's Park. Home to the local Parkrun, this quiet park is gently undulating to add a little interest and lots of wildlife and scenery to keep it interesting. The park is completely traffic-free but will be open to the public on the day so watch out for dogs who may want to run up and say hi!
