Profile description

Generally, this is a fairly “flat” and lightly hilly course. The starting area is at about 8 meters above sea level, and the highest point on the course is reached after about 12.5 km, at about 32 meters above sea level (see profile below).

The course starts flat/downhill, with a subsequent climb of 6 meters after 200 meters. Then, the terrain is fairly flat for about 11.5 km, followed by a gradual ascent of 27 meters over about 1 km towards the highest point, before it goes downhill and flattens out towards the finish line.
