The bike course as we plan it now will be considered flat and fast. We will publish a map of the final bike course in early spring as we are working out some details.
The athletes run from the transition area to the city center of Kalmar – always close to water – past the former residence of the old Swedish king Gustav Wasa -Kalmar castel. The run is a three loop course before entering the finish line at the main square in Kalmar town. Maps will be published in early spring.
