The 1.5km swim consists of one 1km lap and one 500m lap starting on the pontoon by Odaiba Beach and heading into Tokyo Bay towards Bird Island. The athletes will then transition on Seaside Park before heading onto the technically demanding 8-lap, 40km bike course that takes in the gardens of West Promenade before a sharp cutback to head north and under Wangan-doro Avenue and another cutback to head back towards transition. The 4-lap run then circles the park, finishing in grand style back on the edge of Tokyo Bay, with the soaring Japanese capital as backdrop. VENUE AND COURSE The more compact Mixed Relay course incorporates a 300m swim, 2-lap 6.8km bike across the bridge towards Ariake Tennis Park and two laps of the 1km run around Odaiba Beach.
