According to the registrations that are being made, the II Enduroman Lanzarote –Which will be held on the first weekend of next February on that Canary island– promises to be the most competitive, complete and lively triathlon festival of the season. In the four categories (Double Enduroman, Enduroman, Medium Enduroman and Olympic Enduroman), prominent national and foreign triathletes have already signed up, who have been decided after knowing the characteristics of the new routes:
El swimming circuit For the four tests it will be located on the beach in the center of the fishing village of Playa Blanca and will be delimited by the fine white sand beach, buoys and a jetty. The sea water temperature at that time in Lanzarote is 24º C.
La bicycle stage It will take place in the beautiful circuit that runs parallel to the coast of the Volcanoes Natural Park and the Timanfaya National Park, between two seas, one of transparent oceanic water and the other of lava and volcanoes.
The walking stages They will be carried out on a 2,630 km asphalt circuit parallel to the Playa Blanca promenade in which Double Enduroman triathletes will have to complete 32 laps, Enduroman 16 laps and Medium Enduroman eight laps. Participants in the Olympic Enduroman test must complete this stage of running on a 3,33 km circuit in the same area. The difference of this circuit with respect to the one previously described is that the return point will be further away and that the participants will have to cross it three times.
The star test, undoubtedly, remains the Double Enduroman of Lanzarote, scored by the IUTA and already considered as the toughest test of those that are held in Spain because, in addition to the extreme lengths of each section, it has the characteristic that it is “non stop”, Without stops, so the triathletes have to spend, on average, almost two days to complete it. The maximum time allowed is 40 hours. Among those enrolled in this test stand out Paul Thompson, the winner of the I Enduroman Lanzarote; Miguel Martínez Basurco the first Spanish triathlete to reach the finish line at this year's festival; veteran Guy Rossi that in his 63 years of life he has competed in 53 iron-man doubles (including this year's Enduroman doubles), 27 triples, 3 quintuplets and 10 iron-man doubles; the Lanzarote champion Gregory Caceres and the first female who aspires to be a double iron woman, Violet Tatay, a Valencian dentist ready to enjoy her favorite sport on her favorite island.
