The UK’s Brownlee brothers - reigning Olympic Champion Alistair and his brother Jonathan, 2012 World Champion - will open their seasons at this annual event which attracts the world’s best triathletes and international amateurs. The race is contested across three distances. The 223kms main 'long course' boasts a gruelling 3km swim, a 200km cycle and 20km closing run. The 'short' course, at half the length, has a 1.5km swim, a 100km cycle and a 10 km run, while the sprint course - which can be run as a team relay - has a 750m swim, a 50km bike and 5km run.
Starting with a sunrise swim in the Arabian Gulf’s turquoise waters off Abu Dhabi’s blue flagged public beach, the course then weaves through the closed roads along the Abu Dhabi Corniche beach, up to the spectacular Yas Island and around Yas Marina Circuit – home to the annual Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix - before returning to the heart of the UAE capital.
