Guernsey Granite Man Sprint Triathlon
01 Sep 19
The Granite Man Sprint Triathlon will be held at Pembroke Bay, at the north end of Guernsey, and consists of a 750 metre open water swim, 20km bike and a 5km run. All distances are approximate but considerable effort will be made (using GPS equipment) to ensure that the distances on race day are as accurate as possible. The event will also incorporate a Sprint team relay aimed at Corporate and other composite teams.
The swim starts at 7:00am and will be an open sea swim in Pembroke Bay around marker buoys. We advise you to practice sea swimming before the event. Safety craft will be in position and lifeguards are instructed to remove any competitor from the water who they consider in danger for whatever reason.
One loop of a circuit from Pembroke Bay via St Sampson down the west coast of the island before returning to the north end of the island along the coast road. The road surfaces are good and, in the correct weather conditions, the bike course is fast. Marshals will be in place at key locations along the course.
Correct and safe navigation of the cycle course is the responsibility of the individual competitor.
The run leaves transition and follows the coastal paths around the north end of the island. The run is mainly flat on a well-established coastal route. The course will be marked prior to the event.
Correct and safe navigation of the run course is the responsibility of the individual competitor.
