Garmin Challenge Fredericia will be a Olympic Distance race in 2017.
1.5 km swim -> 40 km cycling -> 10 km run
The course below will be subject to some changes
A 40 km route starting in the center of Fredericia going southwest for a loop and then taking the athletes over the iconic Old Little Belt Bridge and into the city of Middelfart. Just before they reach Middelfart they will go through the beautiful Hindsgavl nature park. The course goes back over the Old Little Belt Bridge and takes the athletes back to Fredericia and the transition area.
The run course will take you through Fredericia’s historic town, surrounded by the ramparts that used to protect the city from its enemies, but have now been turned into a city park. Frederica is always a beautiful town to visit, filled with narrow cobble streets and old houses. On this particular day, however, it is so much more. The people of Fredericia will be partying in the streets, as this is the weekend of the town festival with tons of music and entrainment going on everywhere. So, the athletes can expect the kilometers to fly by. Two rounds for short distance and four for half distance gives the spectators a chance to see their favorite athletes multiple times.
