Łukasz Maleszewski, the competition's spokesman
Following the example of previous years and the rivalry of Citi Handlowy 5150 Warsaw, the competitors will start competing in Zalew Zegrzyński. After completing the assumed distance, triathletes will set off on a fast and flat bicycle route that will lead them to the vicinity of Radzymin, and then through Nieporęt. Next, the route will lead along the Żerań Canal, then the competitors will enter the North Bridge onto Wisłostrada. There, the widest and fastest part of the route awaits them, including a tunnel crossing near the Świętokrzyski Bridge. They will turn back at Czerniakowska Street, before the intersection with ul. Gagarin and will head back towards the Old and New Towns.



The cycling stage at Citi Handlowy IRONMAN 70.3 Warsaw is 90 kilometres. The route is primarily flat and fast, but also wide in many places, and thus comfortable and safe for triathletes. Numerous long straights, as well as the possibility of passing the tunnel on the Wisłostrada or passing several characteristic objects on the map of Warsaw, will make the riders feel a lot of fun from the ride. The run course seems to be even more interesting in this respect.
