The road to Kona runs through the heart of one of Europe's most historic and beautiful capital cities.

The spectator friendly race course passes many of the picturesque city's historic landmarks, such as the world-famous Opera House, the Little Mermaid statue, Amalienborg Palace (home of the Danish Queen) and the New Harbour waterfront.

The swim is a 3.8 km one-lap course in the lagoon at Amager Beach Park with excellent spectator views from the shores, as well as atop the three picturesque bridges perched above the action.

For the 180 km bike ride, competitors will wind through central Copenhagen before heading north on two loops in the rolling hills of the island's northern countryside, where lush farmlands create a scenic tour. You may recognize the scenery from the World Road Race Cycling Championships, which took place here in 2011, and will find yourself in a Tour de France-like atmosphere with spectators lining the course.

Once back in downtown Copenhagen, you’ll dismount your bike next to the Royal Actress House. This might be the fastest T2 in the world, as athletes hand over their bike and begin the run in just over 50 seconds.

The four and a half-lap run course stretches along the city’s harbor, lined with bright 17th and 18th-century row houses and more than 150,000 cheering fans. Copenhageners celebrate the triathletes in front of the Royal Actress House at Ofelia Plads, creating a tremendous crowning moment for every finisher.

IRONMAN Copenhagen offers 40 qualifying slots for the 2017 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, HI.
