The second day, Saturday 19 September, will be the Bike day. On this day athletes are up for the 90 km long bike course. Both start and finish will be in the city centre of Reuver. Last but not least: the Run on Sunday 20 September. Athletes will run 21.1 km, also starting and finishing in the centre of Reuver.
Set on the outskirts of Beesel town the new swim venue is a truly unique setting and a stunning location for the start of the Long Course Weekend. The course starts and finishes in a tributary of the historic river Meuse, known as the Dode Maasarm.
