NT Sprint Distance Triathlon Championships 2016


COURSE

The race is held in East Point Reserve, whose peaceful beauty is just 15 minutes from the CBD and Darwin airport. With playground facilities and lush bushland, supporters are able to watch the action and cheer you on, in shaded comfort.

This race takes place during the tropical wet season which is hot and humid. Average daily temperatures range from 24C min - 32C max, with humidity over 70%; this can make temperatures feel like 36C+. If you are not used to racing in these conditions, please factor the effects of this climate into your race day preparations. 

Swim

The swim leg is held in tranquil Lake Alexander, which provides the perfect 1 loop Sprint distance swim. Water temperature will be approximately 27-30 degrees, non-wetsuit swim.
