The beautiful beach, sea and dunes surrounding Kijkduin (The Hague) are the main elements of the tough course of the Kyocera Beach Challenge Cross triathlon. This race is always unpredictable and challenging due to the ever-changing natural elements of wind, sand and sea.
- Beach mass start
- Water temperature: 17/18
- Ocean swim. The current and heavy surf can be a real challenge.

- The start is on the beach. 40% of the MTB course is on the beach. The rest and more technical parts are in the dunes, where the athletes are faced with steep hills, long stairs and soft sand

CC Run
- The course is in the dunes and on the beach. In the dunes the athletes have to climb and descend some steep hills. The finish is on the crowded boulevard of the seaside resort of Kijkduin (The Hague)
