Costa Teguise International Triathlon

Costa Teguise 22nd March 2013 A ring side seat when staying in one of our Lanzarote villas

Weather you are a Villasun client staying in one of our Lanzarote villas or a holiday maker looking for thing to do during your holiday the Costa Teguise TR1-122 is a spectacular not to be missed.

The international triathlon is now gathering pace, scheduled for the 22nd March 2013 following last year’s inaugural event. The organisers wishing to thank all last year competitors and a special shout to the many volunteers without them the event would not have been possible.

TheTri122 is staged in the family resort of Costa Teguise. Wind surfers, cyclists, runners and swimmers joining forces with the ranks of holidaymakers to take advantage of Lanzarote’s year round temperate climate and unique landscape to combine sporting endeavours with relaxation.

This years event being supported again by the following groups:- Civil defence Teguise, the Spanish Red Cross, Ren, the Security and Emergency Consortium of Lanzarote, the local police, the Guardia Civil of Teguise, the traffic police, the Guardia Civil patrol.

The swim section takes place off the beach of El Jablillo Bajo and consists of two laps, each of 1km duration, with an exit from the water on the beach in between the two laps. This will certainly add an extra bit of muscle draining charm to the proceedings. With wet suits off the salty athletes will set off on the cycle section which will take them on a 100km circuit taking in Arrieta, Punto Mujeres, Orzola, Subida a Tabayesco (an 11km and 8-10% gradient climb), Los Valles, Teguise, Tahíche and back to Costa Teguise. The circuit includes a climb of some 618 metres in total and some of Lanzarote’s most spectacular scenery.

The final run takes place over three laps, each approximately 3.3 km, along the seafront of Costa Teguise, a stone throw from our own Lanzarote villas. The finish line again in Central Costa Teguise where another incredible Lanzarote sporting event will end on a podium for the super fit few.
