Enduroman Lanzarote, maximum expectation

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, Half Enduroman and Olympic Enduroman) prominent national and foreign triathletes have already signed up, who have decided after knowing the characteristics of the new tracks:

La bicycle stage It will take place in the beautiful circuit that runs parallel to the coast of the Parque Natural de los Volcanes and the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya, between two seas, one of transparent oceanic water and the other of lava and volcanoes.

 

All the walking stages They will take place 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 Half Enduroman eight laps. Participants in the Olympic Enduroman event must complete this stage of the race on foot on a 3,33 km circuit in the same area.

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 Martinez Basurco the first Spanish triathlete to reach the finish line in this year's festival; the veteran Guy Rossi that in his 63 years of life he has competed in 53 iron-man doubles (including this year's Enduroman double), 27 triples, 3 quintuples and 10 deca iron-mans; the Lanzarote champion Gregory Caceres and the first female who aspires to be a double iron woman, Violet Tatay, Valencian dentist willing to enjoy her favorite sport on her favorite island.
