I see it’s done by the people behind UMoz. Obviously not able to run the UM brand or distance so they’ve set up their own. 

Distances aren’t huge. Obviously looking to attract more punters. 

Soeaking from personal experience, it will be interesting to see which route they take the bikes out on. Having to deal with Main Roads is a major headache. That’s the main reason the bike course for the HB100 is solely on local roads. 

I wish them luck. Hopefully it’s anither good event for the Bay.

They still plan to run Ultraman distance race next year. I don’t know about the branding though.

5km swim. Pathetic.

 

Otherwise looks very good.

There are no rules to stop at 5k. Just do a few laps.

Can only do 5km at Hervey bay before the plug is pulled for low tide and there's no water in the bay

I can get you a 14 km  lap (7 each way) and you can stay within 50m of the (sandy) beach the whole way......

True. But you’d have to time it so you swam the first 7km on the last of the incoming tide, then turn and swim the next 7km on the outgoing tide.

I was always amazed at how they could get the distance so wrong in some of the HB races I did. You could measure the swim course with a measuring wheel at low tide & drop the buoy anchors in then.

Yep. That’s exactly how he did it. His swims were always bang on.

Probably before his time then. He was working with me in Telstra when we did those, and I'm pretty sure he was racing as well.
