I've done the Olympic there previously, and was a well drilled and organised race in a stunning location. Things you will definitely get:

Murky brown water in the moat, with the highlight being a short paddle through the archway of the castle.
A rolling, but fast, out and bike course on the A20. At that time of day the road is quiet and it's reasonably wide. Pretty fast, but don't get too carried away! From the turn roundabout at ~14 miles, it's gently/slightly uphill for the next 10 miles.
The run is a double lapper off-road, with some pretty short and sharp climbs. Legs will be sapped, but luckily the last mile or so is downhill!

Enjoy!
