Notoriously the hardest Ironman, this course has the longest average finishing time across all age groups in the world, over 13 hours for mortals and over 9 hours for pros. The last few years have also seen a 12% DNF rate - more than one out of every 10 people who try this race fail.

Overall Surface Quality:
Excellent, parts may get slippery when it rains
Strava workout from last year’s race:
Dozens of “rollers” that could really be categorized as category 2 or 3 climbs. Quite a few of these break 5%, and there is nearly 3km of the course at over a 10% grade:
Steepest Climb: Wisemans Bridge to Saundersfoot (@ km 105 and 171)
Longest Climb: Climb into Cross Hands (@ km 78 and 144)
Rolliest section: Km 90 - 98 and 156 - 164
