Route Description

Start your race with the exclusive opportunity to swim in Cardiff Bay. Cardiff Bay is supplied by two rivers to form a 500-acre (2.0 km2) freshwater lake around the former dockland area south of the City Centre.

Once through transition, you will head out on a 56 mile (91k) fast flat bike route, initially on a closed road section before leading out to open roads heading east through Cardiff's industrial heritage. From here you’ll head to the beautiful Wentlooge flat lands before entering the neighbouring district of Newport. After turning around you’ll then head back and complete a further 3 laps of the closed road section before arriving back at transition.

Your run is an out and back run route which you must complete five times, giving a great opportunity to catch all the sights along the way. Head out of transition first towards the Norwegian church and along the cycle path, taking in the sites of industrial heritage that Cardiff is so renowned for. The route is flat and fast especially as you run along the Barrage. The route back gives you views of the Pierhead Building, the Wales Millennium Centre, the Senedd and so much more that you’ll have plenty to keep you motivated as you go for your PB! The lap turn around is right by the Pierhead building, where you’ll double back and head out again to the Barrage. Once you get here a second time, it's time for your sprint finish; along Bute Place, around the corner, and into the finish line in front of the Wales Millennium Centre.
