Route information
Swim
The start and finish point is at the Royal Beach. The swimming course will be counterclockwise, in a triangle path, bounded with buoys. The full distance participants will swim the course twice. At the end of the first lap they will exit the water, pass on the “timing mat” before starting the second lap.
T1
The transition area will be located at the back of the “Sport” hotel. The running distance from the beach to the transition area is approximately 400 metres.
Bike
According to the ISRAMAN tradition, the cycling will take place on route no.12, featuring the steep climb to the surrounding mountains and the rolling-hills route overlooking the Gulf of Eilat and the Arava Valley – a region known for its gustily wind.
The course begins at the “Sport Club” hotel, goes along the Airport bypass road, continues to the northern Eilat bypass road to the Shachmon Square and then on to Route 12.
At the “Sayarim” Junction, about 53.7k from the beginning of the cycling course, riders will perform a U-turn and return the same way up to T2.
Participants of the half distance race will get off the bikes after approximately 91.5km, while the full distance participants will perform another U-turn and cycle another 44.2km each direction (the second turn will take place about 2.8k before the “Ovda” airport ), in order to complete the cycling distance of exactly 180k.
T2
The transition area will be located at the junction point of road no.12 and the Israel National Trail, at the foot of Mount “Yoash”. (The bikes and transition bags will be transported back to T1 by the ISRAMAN team)
Run
The running course begins with exiting the transition area and descends along road 12 towards the city of Eilat until it arrives to the ‘xtrim’ aid station at Shahmon roundabout. Runners turn North and continue about 1.3k before they do a U-turn and head back to the ‘xtrim’ station. The course continues to descent through Ha’gai road, Hativat Ha’negev boulevard and Argaman boulevard till it reaches ‘MyWay’ support station at the Meridian roundabout.
From the Meridian roundabout, the course continues south along the pedestrian path on the eastern side of the road to Taba, till the southern turning point just before the Dolphin Reef, and back to ‘MyWay’ support station. The course continues along the beach promenade to the western corner of the Marina. The course surrounds the marina and from there on, continues along the promenade of Queen of Sheba. The ISRAMAN 113 runners turn towards the Finish line, while the ISRAMAN 226 runners make a U-turne and continue to run 2 more laps along the same course until the southern turning point.
