Race 5 Elwood

Sunday 6 March 2022

Swim Leg replaced with contingency run due to poor water quality

Update March 5th – Following EPA advice for not swimming after significant rainfall and more than 10mm of rain across Elwood. The beach has been deemed Not suitable for swimming’, due to poor water quality. EPA Information HERE.

Although the beach may look clear of debris, other factors like E. coli are taken into account, we have also had this validated via consultation with Life Saving Victoria and Triathlon Victoria.  The health and safety of our participants is always our number 1 priority so, therefore, a contingency Run will replace the swim leg, as per Triathlon Australia.
