Summary: Great Race!
Comments: Flat & fast course. Beautiful beach swim, flat bike with OK scenary but great the roads are 100% closed to traffic, back to the coast line to run a flat course with great beach views. Race very well organized. Great atmosphere & support from crowd. Highly recommend this race!

Summary: Fast friendly Ironman perfect for the family
Comments: Top spot in Australia. Great beaches, wineries and accomodation in area. Limited accomodation close to race but organisers run bus to race and functions. One of the best swim courses in the world as it follows a jetty straight out 1.8km and back around, so no problem with navigation and water is crystal clear. Cycle course is on great to good roads over 3 laps with only a pimple of a bridge in it for a hill (practice on your turbo plenty). Wind can be a problem but you change direction a number of times so you won't have it in your face for long. Run is 3 laps as well and flat as well. It follows the beach line so if it is hot the is virtually no shade which can be testing. The town and government are right behind the event which shows with a very well run friendly race. Only thing to note is crowds are small due to the population in the area being small, but that isn't a drawback as it gives it that personal feel.
