Triathlon in Barcelona is written

The registration period is now open for the Challenge Barcelona Triathlon, the leading competition set to be held on 27 October. The finest athletes will again be battling it out in a combination of athletics, cycling and swimming around the city’s streets and beaches.

One of the main new aspects to this year’s event is the opening up of 80 places for amateur athletes over the Short distance. Those wishing to sign up for the over this distance must meet two fundamental requisites: to be federated in the triathlon and to accept and satisfy the cut-off time and the established regulations for this distance.

As with last year’s edition, the event again offers an option for youngsters: teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17 will be able to compete over the Super Sprint distance, the goal being to promote the competition with maximum safety.

The categories can be found on the website and are as follows:

  • Short: 1,500 metres of swimming (2 laps), 56 km of cycling (5 laps) and 15 km of running (3 laps).
  • Olympic: 1,500 metres of swimming (1 lap), 40 km of cycling (4 laps) and 10 km of running (2 laps).
  • Sprint: 750 metres of swimming (1 lap), 20 km of cycling (2 laps) and 5 km of running (1 lap).
  • Junior Challenge: 300 metres of swimming (1 lap), 9 km of cycling (1 lap) and 1.5 km of running (1 lap).
  • Aquatló: 750 metres of swimming (1 lap), 5 km of running (1 lap).

On your marks, get set, go!
