The Brownlee brothers - reigning Olympic Champion Alistair and his brother Jonathan, 2012 World Champion - will open their seasons in the emirate on March 15th.
Now entering its 5th year, the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon has three course distances: the 223km ‘long course’ (3km swim, a 200km cycle and 20km run), the half-length ‘short’ course (1.5km swim, a 100km cycle and a 10 km run), and the sprint course (750m swim, a 50km bike and 5km run). Both the ‘short’ and the ‘sprint’ can be run as a team relay.
Starting off Abu Dhabi’s public beach, the course will weave its way along the Corniche to Yas Island and around the Yas Marina Circuit, before returning to the heart of the UAE capital.
