This test is followed by 20 kilometers of mountain bike around the Polvoranca perimeter. Then, four kilometers of continuous running on foot, around the lagoon, will conclude the triathlon test.
According to the councilor for Sports in Leganés, Juan Manuel Álamo, the municipal technicians have carried out health studies in the Mari Pascuala lagoon to guarantee the good condition of the water when carrying out the test.
