Participants can now register for the annual El Médano triathlon, which takes place on 14 June from 9am. Several hundred are expected to take part and, no doubt, just as many if not more will be lining the routes to watch the 1.5 km swim, followed by a 40 km cycle race, and ending with a 10 km foot race. Gruelling is not the word! As usual the TF643 El Médano to Los Abrigos will be closed between 8.30 and 12.30, and there will be prizes of €800, €500 and €200 for the top three competitors.
Inscription costs €52 (federated participants €42 because they already have insurance) before 30 April, when the registration fees will go up €10. Registration closes 6 June. For further details, the official website is HERE. For those who have already seen promotional literature about this event, please note the date – it has been changed to Sunday 14 June, even though originally advertised as Saturday 13th.
