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. You will swim across the bay to the bottom of transition.

Your draft legal bike route consists of 4 laps of a 5.1km course on entirely closed roads. Heading out of transition under the shadow of the Wales Millenium Centre you will head along James Street turning around at the roundabout with Avondale Road, going back the way you have come. You will then fly along Lloyd George Avenue and thrill at the speed on this section, with another turn around to come at the top so that you get to speed down the avenue once again. The lap ends at the entrance to the Oval Basin which houses the transition area.

The run is a fast out and back run route, showing off the sights of Cardiff Bay along the way. Heading 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 Millenium Centre, the Senedd and you’ll have plenty to keep you motivated as you go for that place on the podium and at the World Championships! Once you get to the Senedd Building its time for your sprint finish; along Bute Place, around the corner and into the finish line in front of the Wales Millenium Centre.
