The swim will take place in the swimming pool of Calne Leisure Centre. This will be 16 lengths of a 25-metre pool. You will start and finish at the shallow end, where you will exit through the door on the far side. Transition will be located on the playing fields just outside; you will have approximately 150 metres to your bike. The cycle route is an out and back 20km route which takes a steady climb out past Oldbury (Cherhill) White Horse with some fantastic scenery. You will come back into transition where you can quick change your shoes and drop your bike off, before heading on a 50:50 grass & tarmac out and back 5km run. As you come back into the grounds, you will finish on the spectator friendly cricket strip.
