tips on good audience places!
Be there already early in the morning at the swimming start. The starting area at Tullhamnen is full of both competitors and spectators. After the start, go over to Vågbrytarbadet, Ängöbron or stand by the shoreline along the canal to get a close-up view of the participants tackling the swimming course. You can also see well at the transition area, where the athletes change from swimming to cycling and from cycling to running.
The cycle track offers plenty of good spectator spots along the 180 km long course. You can see the participants on two occasions when they pass the liquid station in Färjestaden, when they are on their way out to Öland or on their way back to the mainland. Or join the crowd at the famous roundabout in the center of Kalmar before the competitors cycle out onto the loop on the mainland. Here below we advise on some stopping times and locations on the island.
Tips for places along the bike path:
at 08.00 - 15.00: Ferry Town (Öland's Market City and harbor plan)
at 08.00 - 15.00: Runsbäck curve
at 08.30 - 11.00: Mörbylånga (square and sports field)
at 09.00 - 12.00: Degerhamn (hill up to route 136)
at 09.30 - 13.00: Hulterstad
at 10.00 - 14.00: Resmo/Gynge (Gynge bygata)

at 11.00 - 16.00: Rockneby (church)
at 11.00 - 16.30: Lindsdal (Folkets hus)
Kalmar center is the right place for the audience to be during the run. Take a seat at one of the restaurants or get a good view of the course along Kalmar's shopping streets. It's definitely a must!
