A one-lap swim segment in the mountain lake which waters are as transparent and light blue as the sky itself. The bike course is quite difficult, in this way the strong cycling triathletes will take good advantage of it. 3 laps of about 13 km and, in each lap the athletes will have to do a 350 meters of pavè road and a tract unpaved of about 300 meters. The cycling course resembles for its difficulties a classical bike race of northern Europe. The one-lap final run is quite easy and slightly descends for 7 km to the finish line, located in the center of the little town of Alfedena.
