ABOUT THE COURSE
A beautiful and challenging course awaits you in 2018! #TriBermuda for the first time!
Bermuda has a stunning race course in store for Age Groups for the inaugural World Triathlon Bermuda. The race takes place Saturday April 28 as part of the Bermuda Triathlon Festival Weekend (from Thursday April 26 to Sunday April 29).
The course starts and ends in Bermuda’s vibrant capital city, Hamilton. Competitors will first swim in the crystal-clear waters of Hamilton Harbour, then bike through hilly terrain and finish with the run alongside candy-coloured buildings on city streets. The central location of Hamilton offers great viewing for spectators and several significant technical challenges for athletes.
One of the highlights of the bike course will be hundreds of athletes pumping their way up Corkscrew Hill in a grueling steep effort. This is a short, steep hill with hairpin curves, and is the signature challenge of the course, offering athletes an opportunity to test themselves while still being achievable. Our bike experts recommend making sure you have a 25-28
cassette for your bike to handle Corkscrew Hill.
