The famous Hervey Bay foreshore provides the perfect natural arena for this spectacular Long Course triathlon. It all takes place a stone's throw from the water's edge between Torquay Beach and Gatakers Bay before finishing back in Scarness Park.
The Scarness foreshore provides the perfect staging point for the Hog's Breath Hervey Bay 100. The race Expo and registration takes place in Scarness Park at the junction of the Esplanade and Queen's Road, which is also the finish line.
Transition is in the car park adjacent to Scarness Park, right next to swim leg sponsor, Enzo's on the Beach Cafe.
The Dare2Tri Swim Leg will start 800m West of the race precinct opposite Apex Park on the esplanade, near Tooan Creek. Spectators can get an excellent view of the swim and can walk along the beach for the entire length of the swim, keeping their favourite athlete in sight the whole time. The course map will be available after a test swim is carried out in early October on a revised swim course to suit the incoming tide this year.
The Marty Leahy Concreting Bike Leg utilises a 20km loop of the Esplanade between Torquay and Gatakers Bay. It is here that athletes will encounter the famous "Gatakers Hill". Competitors will complete four laps of this course, which means they will pass through the transition and finish area a total of eight times. This provides excellent viewing opportunities for spectators who can watch the race while visiting any of the numerous shops and eateries within the race precinct.
The Bendigo Community Bank Run Leg is a 6km loop along Hervey Bay's scenic Esplanade pathway between the Hervey Bay Surf Lifesaving Club at Torquay and Tooan Tooan Creek. Competitors will complete three laps of the run course which will take them through the middle of the race expo site and all the club tents a total of six times before crossing the finish line in Scarness Park. The carnival atmosphere of the transition/finish area provides a welcome boost for competitors each time they pass through and there is ample opportunity for spectators to give their family, friends or clubmates a cheer or a sledge.
