Challenge Madrid, the Full distance with final in the KM0 of Puerta del Sol

For the 2019 the test presents changes in the route and a new test of medium distance

The third edition of Challenge Madrid, brought us many novelties, on the one hand the launch of the medium distance test, where with great success sold out inscriptions in just 45 hours.

On the other hand the change of date of the test that will be disputed September 22  and finally the change of test routes, which will run through the Sierra Oeste of the Community of Madrid with start in San Martín de Valdeiglesias and finish at the Km0 of the Puerta del Sol.

The swimming segment will be developed in the Beach of the New Virgin (also known as "the beach of Madrid"), which in 2018 was declared Blue flag, as a hallmark of the standards of clarity that the City of San Martín de Valdeiglesias proposed and achieved. It's about the first indoor beach with blue flag of the Community of Madrid.

The new Long distance cyclist circuit will maintain the hardness in its layout with a positive slope of 2.400 meters, while the middle distance travel will only have 1.000 meters of positive height difference. 

The director of the race, Alfonso Rodríguez de Sadia, told us the reason for the changes: "After receiving many requests from triathletes since its launch in 2015, it has been designed a new cycling circuit which will allow include the average distance without changing the sign of identity of the test what is your goal in the 0 Km from the Puerta del Sol ".
