Racing takes place on the Heffron Park Criterium Circuit. This 2.04km track consists of a sequence of tight left and right corners, including the infamous ‘squircle’. The surface itself is fast and flat, with the exception of two small risers – good for traveling speed in the big chain ring.
The track is about 6m wide at most points allowing a two-abreast group to overtake a slower two-abreast group in relative safety even through the sharp corners. The surface consists of mainly concrete with some sections of bitumen.
Whilst it might look like a good course to get away from the bunch, there is always a good breeze at Heffron so be prepared to do a lot of work out there by yourself. It is only the very fittest riders who can ride away from a bunch on this course.
The Start/Finish line is located just south of the car park. Prior to the start finish is a straight of about 400m allowing for a really fast sprint finish. From the 400m mark (see map), the track is labeled in decreasing 50m increments.
