The IRONMAN starts directly from the Alster, at the jetty of the Jungfernstieg. The athletes swim a total of 3.8 km in two swimming loops, passing through both the inner Alster (Binnenalster) and outer Alster (Außenalster) lakes. The race then continues by bike having passed through the transition zone at Ballindamm. The bike course consists of two circuits with a total distance of 90 km. From the city centre, the athletes will cycle through Hamburg’s Großmarkt and the harbour to the Vierlande and Marschlande districts. The course features highlights such as the Hohendeicher See and the Zollenspieker Fährhaus. The last stage of the IRONMAN triathlon is the 42.2 km run around the inner Alster and outer Alster lakes and Hamburg city centre.
