The 3,8 km (2,4 mile) swim segment will take place in the blue waters of Nice's Bay of Angels.
Triathletes will enter the water at Plage des Ponchettes, next to the Promenade des Anglais, and follow a rectangular double course perpendicular to the Promenade, with stunning views of the coastline and the Alpes-Maritimes in the background.
Cycling in the Maritime Alps
The 180,2 km cycling segment, thanks to its mountainous profile, will be one of the most spectacular and demanding of all the IRONMAN World Championships to date.

In total 2.400 meters of positive slope, with the Col de l'Ecre as the main mountainous difficulty.
