Exit transition by the run exit ONLY and follow the cones onto the main road by the car park ( Cooper’s Island Road) . Do not cut the cones when exiting onto the road. Stay in the coned lane sending you to the left side of the road. Head right onto Cooper’s Island Road heading in a westerly direction. Follow the road left past the children’s playground area and continue on Coopers Island Road past Gombeys’ Restaurant on your left and the BTA building on your right. Continue on the road past Turtle Beach and through the gates and follow the road up the hill, staying on the left hand side of the road ( you will pass orange cones on your right at the water stop but ignore these orange cones for now).  Keep going on the main road until you reach a GREEN turn around cone. At this cone turn around and head back on the left hand side of the same road the way you came until you reach the orange cones blocking the road and sending you left into the Nature Reserve. Follow this new route back and continue following the cones. You will eventually be running with the ocean on your left and you will come out of the Nature Reserve through the gates on the corner of the main road with the children’s playground in the park to your right. Head back down the road to the left on the left side of the road towards the transition area / main car park.  Follow the “LAPS” sign arrow to the right by continuing on the main road to the GREEN lap turn cone on the main road just before the transition swim entrance.
