SWIM INTO THE BLUE
Sardinia, Italy is a unique island right in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, with turquoise clear warm waters, and is one of the top tourist destinations in Europe. There is no better place to start the triathlon season. The swim takes place on the fabulous Chia Beach, where sport meets nature in an outstanding experience for both athletes and spectators. A 950m two-loop course with an Australian exit after the first lap, which offers the chance for a spectacular run on the beach among spectators and an awesome dive back in to start the next lap.
BIKE INTO THE BLUE
It’s not just about the beach: the 90 km one-loop bike course along the stunning coastline will lead athletes through breathtaking landscapes into the wild of the Mediterranean vegetation, entirely on closed roads. A body and mind thrill that will be hard to forget. A few tough climbs and the frequent breeze might make the bike course quite challenging. Athletes get a lift as they ride along the long inland straight roads.
RUN INTO THE BLUE
The race finishes with a 21 km four-lap run on a flat course between the Chia Laguna Resort and the Chia Beach, that will take athletes close to a spectacular lagoon with pink flamingos as unique spectators, for a one-of-a-kind experience.
