The Half Challenge Barcelona arrives this Sunday to its third edition

Barcelona will host this Sunday the third edition of the Half Challenge long-distance triathlon, a test that has become the most important and international sporting event in Maresme.

The test will consist of 1.900 meters of swimming starting and finishing on Calella beach and on a one-lap route; 90 kilometers of cycling with a two-loop Calella-Mataró route; and a 21-kilometer running race starting at Calella beach, where the two laps will begin to Santa Susana, and ending at Calella beach.

1.300 runners will start, among which will be international triathletes such as Clemente Alonso Mckernan (Winner 2009), Sylvain Sudrie (Winner 2010 and ITU Long Distance World Champion 2010), Stephan Poulat (Olympic in Athens 2004 and French Champion of Long Distance 2010) or Stephen Bayliss (2008 UK Ironman Winner and 2010 Home de Ferro Champion).

In women there will not be as many big names as in the men's test but surely Eva Ledesma, the main favorite, along with other triathletes such as the British Anne Fallows ('top ten' in several Ironman tests) or Saleta Castro they will also offer fans a great run.

Therefore, this weekend Calella will become the capital of European triathlon with the presence of international athletes from France, United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Ireland, Finland, Belgium, Switzerland, Holland, Sweden, Italy, Turkey, Russia and Luxembourg.
