Course information:
The 1.9km swim course will take place in one of the largest rowing lakes in the world, filled with the purest flowing mountain water.

The 86km bike course on fully closed roads is one of the most striking on the circuit. Starting at the Silk Road Samarkand Tourist Complex, the route takes athletes on a real journey through time, passing ancient monuments and historical architecture.

The flat 21km run course is entirely in the modern Silk Road Samarkand Tourist Complex around the rowing lake, including through the Eternal City, recreating the atmosphere of antiquity in modern times.
