Update 16 June: There was a real turnout for the triathlon this morning by the looks of it, and there are some fantastic photos of the event HERE – thanks to Sir Old Golfer Bill for the link, and for the above photo too. Fantastic images which really bring it all to life.
It’s for hardcore athletes all right, but it’s also a great spectacle for the less energetic! The annual El Médano triathlon takes place on 16 June from 9am, with several hundred taking part and, no doubt, just as many if not more 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! For further details, the official website is HERE.
