The swim takes place at the beautiful Rossio dos Olivais, next to the famous Lisbon Oceanarium, on calm waters.
The bike course takes the athletes out of Parque das Nações and into the IC20 freeway, which will be completely closed to traffic. With ample space for everyone and the Tagus river as a backdrop, this is a mostly flat course, with just a 1km climb (6% incline) before the turn around point. Drafting is not allowed in this race.
The run course is flat and alongside the Tagus River, with both paved and off road sections.
