The competition will consist of one Swimming to 2 turns next to the port of Hamilton, later the Cycling consist of 10 turns to a circuit of 4km It runs parallel to the sea in two large straight lines with a small technical area that itches upwards at the turning point.

Finally the 4 walking race laps of 2,5 km also parallel to the sea, until completing the 10km.
