The organizers of Enea IRONMAN Gdynia reveal more cards! Today, the competition routes were presented to the participants and fans. The cycling route has been led through the beautiful Kashubia, and the traditionally running route around the center of Gdynia. The finish line is invariably on the City Beach!

On August 8, the triathletes who will be the first in history to finish the Polish edition of the IRONMAN competition will finish on the Gdynia beach. Competitors taking part in Enea IRONMAN Gdynia will have a total of 226 km to cover, which consists of: 3.8 km of swimming, 180 km of cycling and 42.2 km of running. We already know the exact routes that will be used by triathletes in Gdynia.

In the case of the so-called "half", compared to last year, the cycling route remains unchanged. The distance of 90 kilometers the competitors will cover on one loop, which still guarantees a high level of competitors' distraction. The Enea IRONMAN Gdynia route is twice as long, but a large part of it coincides with the Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia route. In the vicinity of 35 kilometers, at the height of the village of Kłosówko, the triathletes from the full distance will not go towards Szemud, but will go to the larger loop through Pomieczno and Łebno. Before they return to Gdynia, they will drive two picturesque loops along the Kashubian roads and only then, from Koleczkowo, will they go back towards Kościuszko Square.



The running route, which has been marked out in the very center of Gdynia, looks very attractive. Competitors from the "half" will have two loops to cover, and four 10.5 km loops from the full distance. On each loop, they will have the opportunity to admire the symbols of Gdynia located along Władysław IV Street and al. Zwycięstwa and Świętojańska Street. Unusual visual impressions will certainly also be provided by a fragment of the route on the Seaside Boulevard or Piłsudski Street.

The previous year showed that lengthening the loop to 10 kilometers reduced the density of competitors, thus guaranteeing the maximum level of safety. At the same time, we were testing the route in terms of the organization of a full-distance race. The famous ascent along Świętojańska Street and the Nadmorski Boulevard will still be permanent elements of the route, and the finish line will remain on the city beach in Gdynia.



nea IRONMAN Gdynia and Enea IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia are planned for the weekend of 6-8 August 2021. Registration for the competition takes place on the SlotMarket.pl platform.
