Results FAQS Race Pack


if you want to be a part of the weekend but don’t want to do the longer distances, you can enter other combinations such as the 1.9km swim followed by the 180km cycle and then the 10km run, or you may just wish to do one or two of the legs. The combination is all yours – you choose!

Invite friends and training partners, bring along club members and support each other over the weekend.

The 180km ride is a four-lap undulating course and two laps for the 90km ride. 45km participants will complete one lap.

The courses are undulating with two ‘good climbs’ to test the riders – both are achievable though and nothing to fear! The ride starts and finishes at the University of Wollongong, Shoalhaven Campus. By starting and finishing the race in Nowra allows for a very scenic bike ride and also relieves any road congestion in Huskisson.

Cut off applies to the longest distance (180km) and is 8 hours

Key Notes regarding Bike Rules:

Riders using Aero Bars: All riders using aero bars will start their race wave first leaving the start area 5-seconds apart. Riders will line up behind the start line in number order and will leave when instructed by the race director.

Riders must maintain a distance of 7 meters from the back wheel of ANY rider in front of them when they are in the aero position. If riders with aero bars decide to ride within a group (because of fatigue or if a faster group passes them) they MUST NOT be on their aero bars at any time. Riders found to be on their aerobars within a group or if they break the 7 meters draft zone will receive a Blue Card and receive a 5-minute penalty to their times. Three Blue Cards results in a disqualification. Dangerous riding will result in a Red Card disqualification.

Riders without Aero Bars: Riders without aero bars will start as a group at their advertised time. They will leave the start area in groups of 20. Riders are NOT permitted to ride more than two abreast at all times – breaking this rule will result in an Rd Card to the offending rider and the rider will be disqualified. Dangerous riding will result in a red card disqualification.

Note all riders: All riders MUST obey the road rules! This event is based around a Grand Fondo and requires all riders to ride safely and within the limits of normal road rules. A rider must not ride more than two abreast and cross middle white lines on the road at any time. While riding on roads without markings all riders must stay to the left. Please stay as close to the side of the road (the shoulder of the road) as possible. Although roads are closed, local traffic may be on the road as well as event vehicles. Ride safely and within your limits.
