The Russian Cup IRONSTAR 113 KAZAN 2016 for age group athletes, half-iron distance: 1.93-km swim, 90-km bike, 21.1-km run. Everyone who has registered and paid the entrance fee is welcome.
The competition takes place in the very heart of Kazan. The city has hosted Universiade 2013 and the 16th FINA World Championships, and due to this has acquired a unique infrastructure. The Agricultural park and Kazan Kremlin are within walking distance of the venue.
The competition will start on the spectacular Kazanka River embankment. The Kazanka is ideal for holding the swimming stage due to its pure running water, wide water area and the absence of waves. The itinerary is planned so that the participants will not have to make sharp turns in water. There is no doubt that the swimming stage will be comfortable – the reviews from World Championships participants who have swum in the open water have all been positive.
The cycling stage will proceed along the main streets of the Universade 2013 capital. The participants will enjoy nice views of one of the oldest towns in Russia.
The running course is mapped along the Kazanka embankment. A perfectly smooth covering of the embankment without ascents will definitely help you do your best at the final stage of the race. You will have to overcome five laps – from Kazan Kremlin to the Millennium Bridge, passing Kazan National Cultural Centre and other city attractions.
The spectators on the embankment will always find themselves in the center of the race, and the athletes will feel like center of their supporters’ attention.
August 27, 2016. Your chance to visit one of the most beautiful towns in Russia.
