Where is the best place to watch the action?
As the race is on the riverfront and the surf club precinct, there are plenty of vantage points for spectators across all legs of the event. Check out the “course maps” and also consider our tips for enjoying the race:
- Tell your athlete where you will be on the course so they can look for you as well
- Know the course; look over the map in advance so you know what to expect on race day.
- Know your athlete’s wave start time and projected times for each leg of the event. This should give you a good idea of when they will arrive at any point on the course.
- Allow yourself plenty of time to park. There are plenty of parking spaces in and around the event.
- Plan to arrive early.
- Be careful along the course. Please be careful when crossing the course. Only cross at designated crossing points manned by volunteers.
- Please leave the dog at home! If you simply must take you pet to the race, PLEASE be sure to keep it on a leash at all times.
- Arrange a meeting spot after the race
- Remember the essentials; hat, sunscreen, sun glasses and water.
