Garmin Barcelona Triathlon 2011
Sports Tours International is pleased to announce that we have once again been appointed as the Official Sports Travel Partner for IMG and the Garmin Barcelona Triathlon 2011.
After the success of the Garmin Barcelona Triathlon last year Sports Tours International will once again be taking competitors and supporters to take part in this beautiful Spanish city for what should be another great event. Last year over 4,000 people took part in glorious sunny weather in this triathlon making it the largest event in Spain. This year the Barcelona Triathlon organisers are expecting around 5,000 competitors.
Within the Garmin Barcelona Triathlon, there is a Super Sprint (400m swim, 10km bike, 2.5km run), Sprint (750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run) and Olympic distance (1.5km swim, 40km bike, 10km run) race so there is a distance to suit everyone from beginner to Elite.
This will be the fourth edition of the Barcelona Triathlon and it doubles up as the Catalunya National Championships. The route will see competitors battling it out on one of the most scenic courses in Europe taking in some of Barcelona’s prime landmarks and riding around the Parc de la Cuitadella and under the Arc de Triomf. Then on to the run you will take in ocean views as you wind your way along up towards the Olympic Village and then return to the finish.
PLEASE NOTE – DRAFT LEGAL RACE Last Year some competitors were caught out when local Officials asked them to remove their aerobars or to have their bikes in a drafting legal set up. It may be prudent to not use a bike where the aerobars can not be removed. This will be confirmed by the event organisers in due course.
