A single loop around Whitwell creek. This is the perfect spot to swim with shelter from the prevailing conditions and close proximity to transition.
You'll enter the water next to Rutland Watersports before swimming out to the main body of the reservoir. At the furthest marker buoy you'll turn left - swim the width of the creek then turn left again making your way back into the creek.
After swimming all the way back into the creek you'll turn left and left again to face back where you started.
There is one right turn in the entire course located at the exit of the swim.
There's a new exit point for 2021 which is close to transition and easy on your feet.
