Section 3

mcguins to strandhill

2.3km

  • You may see the finish line from here but don't be deceived, you still have 2.3km to go and this is the toughest section.

  • Expect a slight current to be going against you for the first 0.8km of section 3. Its minor but noticeable and you will slow slightly.

  • After this, get your head down and power through those last meters.

  • You will swim parallel to the beach for a little before rounding the final buoy and euphoria begins to creep in.

  • Head straight for the beach. There might be a few waves, enjoy them.

  • Hit the shore, head up the beach, cross the finish line and revel in the fact you are a 'Warrior of the Sea'.
