The most relevant one is the Garmin Barcelona Triathlon in . Some of us have already signed up and are looking forward to it. Since it is quite popular both among the Barcelona community and the international triathlon lovers (sun&beach&nice city), spaces for the event fill up quite fast; last year it was already full in July! It is a very nice event because many of the 5.000 participants are absolut beginners in the triathlon world, so it is quite a friendly environment.
This is the website for more info and for signing up: www.garminbarcelonatriathlon.com
There are many categories you can sign up for, so there is no excuse not to go!
- Olympic: SWIM: 1.500m, BIKE: 40km, RUN: 10km
- Sprint: SWIM: 750m, BIKE: 20km, RUN: 5km
- Super-Sprint: SWIM: 400m, BIKE: 10km, RUN: 2,5km
If you are interested in participating we can help you register and give you some tips on how to prepare or what gear you need. We will be available IN F-102 (Section B class). We will also arrange for the bike and wetsuit rental.
There is also the possibility to participate as a IN TEAMS! It would be teams of 3 people and each one would do one of the 3 parts (swim, bike or run). This is for the Olympic and the Sprint distances. Some of you approached us saying that you would be willing to sign up by teams, so let us know which sport you would like and we will put you in touch.
This last weekend we participated in the 10k Sant Cugat race. It was a very enjoyable race, with quite a flat profile that allowed for a good time!
Other events worth highlighting are:
- 20k run BEHOBIA - SAN SEBASTIÁN: www.behobia-sansebastian.com . One of the most famous races in Spain. Registration period opens tomorrow, , and it typically fills up within few hours! Be fast if yous want to participate.
- 6500m swim MARATÓN: www.marnaton.com . It's the 4th edition of a very popular swimming challenge in Cadaqués. Very nice event for swimming lovers!
