Race - Triathlon
Thanks to the impressive views you'll never believe you are racing through one of the world's most important financial centers.
The 3.8km swim in the crystal clear water, which is of drinking water quality, features a unique Australian exit over a small island. After that, the spectacular bike course leads through the city center along the lake shore out of town. 30km later on the bike you wouldn’t think there was a city even close by. The next hour you ride along grazing lands, small villages and the rolling countryside of Zurich. The two climbs, "The Beast" and "Heartbreak Hill," are lined with spectators cheering and ringing the typical cow bells. The newly designed multifaceted four-loop run course takes you through downtown Zurich. After passing the town's landmarks and the historic buildings, you will run through beautiful alleys before you reach the world-famous Bahnhofstrasse and later the shores of Lake Zurich.
In Zurich, as is typical for Switzerland, everything from shopping to spas and restaurants is very close to the race site and within walking distance.
