Elche will gather 1.200 triathletes

A little less than a month before the celebration of the VII edition of the Elche triathlon, a test called Arenales 113, due to the place where it is held and the kilometers that the participants have to complete, the organization of the Semagrup Elche Triathlon Club is finalizing the details so that the test can once again be a success in participation.

This objective has already been achieved since nearly 1.200 participants will start on Sunday, April 10 on the Arenales del Sol beach. In addition, there is still a week left until the official registration period ends, so the number of athletes it may be even higher.

Among the triathletes who plan to participate in the Elche event, Domenico Passuello stands out, the current winner of the race, who has already confirmed his presence. The Italian will be the rival to beat, although the presence of the Canarian Gregorio Cáceres and Nicholas Peter Ward, in addition to the Spanish-Argentine Francisco Pontano, will add more competitiveness to the VII Elche Triathlon.

In the female category, Saleta Castro, current Spanish Long Distance champion, starts with a certain advantage over her main rivals who will be Ana Casares and Estefanía Gómez, the latter third in the 2010 edition.

Same route
For this edition, the organization has managed to maintain the route designed the previous year. Thus, the 1.900 meters of swimming will be held on the Arenales del Sol beach, while the 90 kilometers of cycling will pass through the Elche districts of El Altet, Torrellano, Altabix and Saladas, in the direction of Aspe, from where they will return to Elche until reach the Carrús industrial estate, along the western route, to head towards Matola, and then connect with the Vereda de Sendres until returning to Arenales del Sol, where the triathletes must cover the last 21 kilometers of the race on foot, before reaching the finish line.
