Quick facts about Challenge Almere-Amsterdam 2017

The Challenge Almere-Amsterdam starts with two swim laps of 1.9 kilometers in the Weerwater (blue line). The start is next to the Theatre Almere on the Esplanade in Almere Stad. You will swim counterclockwise. The first transition from swimming to the bike takes place on the Esplanade.

Bike course

The bike course of the Challenge Almere-Amsterdam has a 2 lap structure. The course is divers with dikes, polders, windmills, and a lot of greens!

The long, windy dikes and the open polders are challenging and tough, both mentally and physically.

The run

From the Esplanade you start your running course through the modern architecture of the city centre. The centre of attention is the green area around the Weerwater, the lake in the middle of Almere that once was part of a sea. The running course consists of six laps. Every lap you pass the stadium where a big crowd cheers you on!
