86 km (with 1229 m elevation gain)
The Challenge Bled middle distance triathlon premiers in May 2020 in the beautiful mountainous region of Slovenia. The aquabike race will start together with the triathlon at 7:00 in the morning. Perfect starting time to finish right in time before breakfast ;-).
The swim takes place in beautiful Bled lake, according to the event website “in crystal clear waters around the island with the church towards the castle of Bled and end up in Mala zaka rowing center”.
The bike course looks quite demanding. The first 30 km seem to be pretty flat, before the road starts to raise steadily. Most of the bike course leads through the Triglav National Park and goes all the way up to famous biathlon center on Pokljuka plateau.
