At the turn around point, before starting lap two and three, participants will find on their right side the bike aid station.
Please remember, that littering is absolutely forbidden anywhere that not next to the aid station and it will result in DQF.
The course starts heading north going out of transition and going left, right after the Vasco de Gama Mall.
This is also where you tart every other lap and where you will find the aid station.
The course takes first, heading north on the Av. D. João II, the race venue main avenue and goes on a major highway, IC2.
It is a quite flat, with a bit of rolling hills but very fast pace course with a, about, 1 km climb to the turn around point.
The run course starts at the transition zone and it is absolutely flat and it is an “in loop” course making it very spectator friendly with tones ou spectators along the entire course. You will find an aid-station at each 2.25 km approximately.

The course is not closed to public, so please mind the people coming and going.
The organisation does its best to assist athletes and people to peaceful navigate and share the space.
Volunteers are along the course with whistles to alert but a good neighbourly attitude is appreciated from all parts. Please remember, ultimately, we are guests at race the venue.
We have a policy of zero tolerance for littering. We are determined to make this a “leave nothing but footprints” event. Any trash from food or drinks you consume must be placed in the proper containers next to aid stations and along the course.
Please make sure you slow down enough (on the bike in particular) to take on any nutrition needs you may have, and make sure you secure them well . At the aid stations there is a dropping zone for your litter that you must absolutely respect.
Of course we understand involuntarily dropping trash, but voluntarily dropping trash outside the proper zones may result in DQF. We are there to help keeping the course and venue as clean as possible, but we all have a roll to play in achieving that goal.
We are sure you appreciate these measures as much as both, we, all residents and local businesses, do. In order to make sure we are welcome back every year lets all do our best and be proud of our attitude and care for the environment.
