Swansea Triathlon route

The Swansea Triathlon will start from the Prince of Wales Dock. Athletes will get into the water and swim anti-clockwise around the course, with large turn-point buoys to be kept on the swimmers left-hand sides.

The bike course will be a 3 lap anti-clockwise route from transition, coming back around into Swansea. The run will see you running through the streets, along the beach to the turning point and back to the finish line.
