World Triathlon Para Series Event : Road Closure And Course Map

Hi all,

We have been asked to share with you the following message from Swansea Council :

As you are aware we have a fabulous weekend of sport in our city in July. IRONMAN 70.3 Swansea will be back Sunday 16 July which you have received detail about and I can now share the road closures and course maps for the World Triathlon Para Series event (WTPS) which will be returning on Saturday 15 July The route will be similar to last year with the start and swim taking place in the Prince of Wales Dock and the transition and finish area being on the SA1 Waterfront by the University of Wales Trinity Saint David campus. The biggest difference will be the bike and run laps which will come through near the start and finish area after each lap, maximising the opportunity for spectators to see the action, alongside enjoying the entertainment on offer in the event village.

The course will consist of a 750m swim in the Prince of Wales Dock, followed by the 20km bike leg which will take the athletes through the Waterfront and Maritime Quarter, past the Swansea Central Library and Civic Centre before going along Oystermouth Road and over the Sail Bridge back past transition. After five laps on the bike, it’s then onto the three-lap 5km run which will be an out-and-back course along Kings Road, which will again bring athletes past the event village and finish area on each lap. Thousands of spectators lined the route last year for the inaugural event – the first in a three-year commitment to host the international para-triathlon event in South Wales ahead of next year’s Paralympic Games in Paris. The race routes and roads affected can be found on the event page World Triathlon Para Series Swansea - Enjoy Swansea Bay (
