Following a swim of 400m at the Leisure Centre indoor pool, competitors will tackle the 18-mile cycle route. This proceeds to Staindrop along the A688 and continues in an anti-clockwise direction over the testing and scenic moorland route over the B6279 to Folly Top. Then follows a long and fast descent along the B6278 back to the Leisure Centre. The run route starts at the back of the Leisure Centre and follows public footpaths, crossing the trackbed of the former Darlington-Barnard Castle railway and heading north to Stainton. The return route takes in the footpath alongside the A688 towards the finish at the side of the Leisure Centre.
