The Danish capital will welcome professional and age group IRONMAN athletes for a sea swim and bike and run routes which are both described as ‘rolling’.
A single lap, 3.8km swim in the artificial lagoon is followed by a two-lap, 180km bike leg that offers athletes city centre, coastal and countryside riding, taking them out of Copenhagen to the north of the area. Back in the city, and the four-lap, 42.2km run course goes passed some of Copenhagen’s most well-known sites as it heads along the waterfront.
Elliot Smales and David McNamee are both named on the start list, however it is only Smales who is expected to race having finished fourth at IRONMAN UK earlier in the year. McNamee has already secured his place in Kona for the IRONMAN World Championships and there are two places on offer in Copenhagen to join him.
