Athletes then turned left and swam 200m out to sea before turning left again returning to the pier. The swim course took athletes past the pier where athletes turned left and headed back to shore. The change tents were located at the start of the car park and Transition (T1) was located at the top car park area.

The 2012 180km IRONMAN Asia-Pacific Championship bike leg was a two-lap course, taking place mainly along the EastLink Tollway.

Athletes exited the Car park at the Frankston Foreshore after the swim leg and turned left onto the Nepean Highway. Athletes then turned right into Playne Street and followed the road to the lights at the Mornington freeway. Athletes then turned left and continued along the freeway until the road turned into the EastLink Tollway. Athletes stayed left at all times on the tollway and followed the undulating course to the Springvale Road exit. The course also made the athletes negotiate the Eastlink Tunnel twice which is a steep gradient of 12%.

After completing the bike course athletes dismount and volunteers take their bike from them and place them safely onto the truck, which transport the bikes to the finish line in St Kilda. Athletes then change in the marquee and make their way onto the 42.2km run initially heading south towards Oliver’s Hill and then they return past the transition area and head over the Frankston foot bridge.

Athletes then follow the beach pathway to the Frankston SLSC where they then turn East and follow the creek back towards the Transition Area. Just prior to the transition area the course crosses the creek and follows the paths until they reach the Nepean Highway. Athletes then run on the left lane of the highway to Mordialloc. Once at Mordialloc athletes follow the pathway all the way to the finish at St. Kilda Sea Baths.
