Course = B3 – B2 – Exit

Bike: 20km  (elevation: 267m)

Athletes will cycle for about 10 km (slightly uphill), do a U-turn and back to the transition zone.
On leaving the transition zone, athletes turn left onto the road and left again at the next intersection (Tavern Perivoli).  Once they reach the Epidaurus-Methana round-about, they stay right, continue under the national road bridge (attention is required here), pass the villages of Ano Epidavros and Kozolaika. They turn left at the intersection of Ancient – New Epidavros – Lygourio  (attention is required here), pass the church of Agios Ioannis, and shortly after, there will be the U turn sign-point. The way back (last 10km) is slightly downhill, and great attention is recommended. Athletes must be very careful at the narrow small bridge that lies shortly after the intersection of Ancient – New Epidavros – Lygourio. Attention is also required, when athletes shortly before they finish, they have to make a 90 ° right turn from the main street to a narrow road (intersection at Tavern Perivoli).

Run: 5km

On leaving the transition zone, athletes turn right onto the coastal paved road marked with a “RUN” sign, right on the dirt-road to the small theater of Epidaurus and then continue by following the markings on the pavement. Athletes will have to make two U turns (one at the intersection to Yalasi and the second at Gliatis beach – sunken city) before they start their way back by following the signs. The athlete return by passing by the small theater of Epidaurus, running on the coastal paved road outside the soccer field (transition zone), in front of the cafes and finally to the finish line, which is located between the park and the pier
