HALF IM TEST SESSION
If you would like to join this training session it will be totally self supported. We will get someone to watch bikes, ideally have a drink station on the bike and shout the farmer a few beers for giving us use of the lake and area.
We have access to swim in the lake (no support) then ride & run the proposed course for the half ironman next summer. You do not have to do a full half IM.
Swim - the lake is 500m long. The water looks nice and clean.
Bike - can be 85-90km or if you only do one loop 60km https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28365592 The course does not really have any hills of note but is a bit of a grind in places.
Run - the course is an out and back lap of 7km https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28406855 . There is a mix of shingle and road running, the first 200-300m is a bit wobbly underfoot.
Date - 27th December with 28th being back up day if the weather is rubbish. Likely start time 7:30am in the water.
Cost - a $15 donation. You need to be a member of Canterbury Triathlon as well (new membership year starts in November)
Location - South Ayre Rd (27km from the turn off Tram Rd). Exact location will be confirmed pre workout
THIS IS A TRAINING SESSION NOT A RACE. THERE IS NO WATER SUPPORT, NO TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT, NO MEDIC… You are responsible for your own safety.
