The swim will take place in the fresh water private lake set in the lower part of Bowood Estate. You will enter the water on the pontoon and start between the marked buoys, and swim around the set course. The exit will be on the pontoon, which leads into a sloping climb towards transition. Transition will be located on the finely manicured lawns and under the shadows of Bowood House. Racking will be numbered according to waves. The cycle route will take you into the ‘wilder’ parts of Bowood Estate, looping around the grounds past Bowood Golf Course, Osprey Farm, and including Lord Lansdownes’ private driveway, which is inhabited with game fowl. Once completing the cycle stage, you will head out on a picturesque run around the estate, taking in stunning scenary of Bowood Lake, The Cascade Waterfall and The Doric Temple. On completion of a second lap, the finish line will be near transition.
