Barcelona Triathlon guide to the annual
Barcelona Triathlon, which is officially known as the Garmin Barcelona Triathlon takes place every year in the month of October. It is one of the most popular races of its kind held in the country, and there are typically over 2000 participants who come from various countries across the world just to be a part of this event.
The triathlon is not only open to professionals, but allows amateurs to participate as well. The event is split into three different categories depending on the length of the race that the participant chooses to enter. The categories are the Super Sprint, the Sprint and the Olympic; the sprint and the Olympic categories allow for team participation.
The race begins on the Llevant and the Nova Mar Bella beaches, where the swimming event is also scheduled to take place. After this, the cycle race is held along the marina, and then takes a diversion up the Avinguda Diagonal before finishing at the Torre Agbar.
The final event features a running race that passes through the Arc de Triomf on to the Torre Mapfre via the Parc de la Ciutadella. While this is the rough estimate of the various routes used in the Barcelona Triathlon, they are not confirmed until two weeks before the race and are subject to change.
The final timetable for the triathlon is also released at this time, along with the starting order for the various groups. Each participant will also receive a race pack, which will be delivered a short while before the race.
