Swim course (1,9 km)
The swim course begins at a place that exudes with a rich history: the Old Town of Budva, whose first pillars date back to the 9th century. The swim start is located at the sandy Pizana Beach, in the eastern part of Old Town. During the swimming segment, athletes will -on one side- have views on the beautiful walls of the Old Town, while on the other side their views will extend towards the blue open sea. During a big part of the swim, you will swim close to the coast, which makes the swim course really accessible for spectators. The course will lead athletes to another beach that is placed between the Old Town walls and the open sea: Ricardova Glava.
Bike course (90 km)
The Montenegrin coast is considered one of the most beautiful coasts on the Adriatic, and Budva, as the heart of the Montenegrin coast, is a symbol of that beauty. The cycling route will consist of three laps, during which competitors will have an impressively beautiful view of the crystal blue sea, stunning wild nature and historical monuments. The three-laps bike course starts with the flat part of the course through Budva and Bečići. After passing these two cities, the bike course will become more hilly.
