Also called The Dragon City, Liuzhou belongs to the northern edge of China's subtropical zone in north-central Guangxi Province. It is as much a well developed, modern city of industry as it is one of culture, history, and natural beauty. The city consists of six counties and four districts, and its population is almost 4 million.
Encircled by green mountains and embraced by the Liu Jiang River, Liuzhou is known as "The Worlds Best Natural Bonsai." It has been praised by Chinese poets, and named one of the most innovative, beautiful, and leisure-friendly cities in China. The city is also a fantastic place for tourists, as it is the key transportation hub of the southwest region. As with much of Guangxi, the landscape around Liuzhou is a mix of rolling hills, mountain peaks, caves and unique karst scenery. It is an ideal base for exploring various quaint villages in the area.
IRONMAN 70.3 Liuzhou will begin with a swim in the Liu River, cutting right through the center of the city. Spectators will have the unique opportunity to watch the swim from the elevated banks of the river and nearby bridge. Athletes will exit the water to transition next to beautiful Broom Hill Park.
The bike course takes riders north out of the city following the river for 35 kilometers before crossing west through the city to begin the second loop. Athletes can expect incredible views as they parallel the Liu River on this rolling course with smooth, clean road surfaces.
The two loops of the run course offer athletes a chance to see the scenes of the city as they complete two loops through downtown Liuzhou, along with both banks of the Liu River. The final stretch will bring competitors down the Wenchang Building Complex with the Liuzhou cityscape providing the backdrop to the finish.
