Voted best swim course in Asia by AsiaTri in 2016! You’ll love it because you start from a white sandy beach, the water’s warm (around 29 degrees), the protected bay offers excellent visibility (you may even spot a few colourful fish!) and there are no currents or swell. It’s like swimming in your own private pool!
Participants will complete 1 lap of a triangular 1.9km swim course, with marker buoys every 50m. The swim will start from the beach, in multiple wave starts, split by age category.
The swim start and finish are in close proximity to the transition area and event venue.
Better visibility with no sun glare now that the course shape has been changed from a rectangle to a triangle!
Voted best bike course in Asia in 2016, thanks to its unique one-lap course that meanders through the north-western part of the island! You’ll love the villages full of enthusiastic flag-waving spectators, and enjoy the scenery as it changes from lush, dense green forest to stunning open coastline.
Rolling hills inland are alternated with fast flat sections trailing the coast. The hills are short, nothing over 60m, but numerous. Total elevations is 700m. The roads are wide with mostly smooth tarmac and low rolling resistance.
The route now meanders anti-clockwise through the north-western part of the island, a change which will ensure less traffic on the course for athletes.
The 2-lap run course winds through the manicured gardens of the Lagoi Bay development, around a pretty man-made lake and through a ‘green corridor’ of dense rain forest. The run takes place on mainly concrete tracks and tarmac roads and has aid stations approximately every 1.5km.
Seeing your fellow athletes on the out and back section at the far end of the course will provide some welcome cheer, as will the festive spectator zones along the course.
We’ve simplified the run course by removing one U-turn from the green corridor (your body will thank us later!).
