Description
The Granite Man Middle Distance Triathlon is held at Pembroke Bay, at the north end of Guernsey, and consists of a 1,900 metre open water swim, 90km bike and a 21km 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.

Swim
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.

Bike
Two loops of a circuit from Pembroke Bay heading east via St Sampson's Harbour, then turning back to head down the west coast of the island, up towards the local airport before returning to the north end of the island along the coast road. The climb to the airport ascends from sea level to a height of approximately 100 metres over three kilometres, i.e. medium-low grade climb. Please take extreme care on the technical descent back to 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 course is the responsibility of the individual competitor. 

Run
The run leaves transition and follows the coastal paths around the north end of the island. There will be aid stations approximately every four / five kilometres. The run is mainly flat on a well-established coastal route.

The course will be well marked prior to the event. Correct and safe navigation of the course is the responsibility of the individual competitor.
