The fun of the participants is the main objective pursued by the TriStar111 Madrid that will be held on July 3 at the Casa de Campo. And to make it easier for more people to approach the world of triathlon for the first time, TriStar continues to develop new, more affordable and fun formats, as well as modalities such as relay teams so that cyclists and runners can also debut in a test of these characteristics. In the Tristar111 Madrid you can participate individually or by relay teams, a new way to complete the 111 kilometers of route in a more relaxed way, since in this way many athletes will be able to approach the long-distance triathlon in an ideal way to your chances.
This relay team modality is ideal for cyclists, runners or swimmers who make their debut in this type of event, as well as for groups of friends, work colleagues and business groups to experience a very special sports day. Relay teams can be made up of two or three members. If there are three relievers, each one completes one of the sectors and gives the relief to the teammate in the transition area, handing him the time control chip in hand. In the case of being only two relievers, one of them must complete two sectors in a row. In addition, teams can be made up of men only, women, or they can be mixed.
To further facilitate registration, the cheapest registration period is extended until Thursday, June 30. Only 20 days left for the inaugural edition of TriStar111 Madrid! The registration period to participate in the competition is open and can be done through the official website of the competition www.tristarmadrid.com PROFESSIONALS FOR VICTORY
