Com­plete runs on the flats and hills; hills will help pre­pare you for that fi­nal run. Mix your runs with some shorter sprints at race pace while hold­ing form.

It’s im­por­tant to prac­tise tran­si­tion time and time again to avoid any un­nec­es­sary time loss. Set up an area at home and run through it un­til it’s sec­ond na­ture.

As this is an un­du­lat­ing course, in­cor­po­rate a mix­ture of climbs, flats and down­hills into your bike train­ing to build up strength and get used to the switch in cadence, keep­ing it high when climb­ing. Prac­tise be­ing com­fort­able on the tri-bars and keep­ing con­trol on the fast des­cents.

Do a short bike, get straight off and then do a short run to get used to the feel­ing. It’s also im­por­tant to watch your pace here, so take it easy and find your rhythm.
