On this occasion, the triathletes will have to swim 1900 meters in the Azud de Pareja, take their bicycles and complete the almost 90 km from that town to Guadalajara, making 5 marked climbs (Auñon, Alhondiga, Fuenteleviejo, Pinilla and Lupiana) and later, running 20 km around the Fuente de la Niña, Paseo San Roque and Adoratrices facilities. The start is scheduled at 14:00 p.m. at the aforementioned Azud and the athletes are expected to arrive in Guadalajara around 16:45 p.m. to begin the running segment, estimating the arrival of the first runners-up after 18:00 p.m.: 21 hours and the last around XNUMXh.

The running area runs through the park near the Sonia Reyes Pool, Paseo San Roque, Santa Maria Micaela and the finish line on the Athletics Tracks. Participation is around 230 triathletes, with a record of local participation representing 15% of those registered, a remarkable fact given the recognized hardness of this test.
