II City of Albacete Triathlon
Next Sunday the Second edition of the Ciudad Albacete Triathlon will be held. Although the first edition dates back to 2004, this time the Albacete Triathlon Club intends to give it continuity and repeat this test year after year, since it is being well received and more triathletes than expected have registered (180 registered among all categories).
The test has the support of the Los Llanos Social Club and Sports Center, where the organization of the test will be located, as well as the swimming and running segments. The cycling segment will pass through the avenue of the path of Pozomajano. The competitions will start from 9 in the morning.
One of the incentives that it will have will be the dispute of the Regional Triathlon Championship in the cadet category, under the distances of 400 meters of swimming, 8 km of cycling and 1500 meters of running. In the female category, Cristina González from Albacete, dominator of the cadet category in CLM, even made good positions in some triathlons in the absolute category. Alba Martínez from Cuenca and Teresa Cañadas from Albacete will try to accompany Cristina on the podium. In the men's category, Juan Carlos Sáez from Cuenca and Antonio Lafuente from Roda start as favorites. On the Albacete side, Samuel Tendero will try to have a good race to qualify for the podium. Ricardo Ander-Egg, Juan Ramón Sánchez and Juan Carlos Pedrosa from Albacete will also participate.
Later, around 9:40, the absolute test will take place, where the organizers have sought affordable distances to promote the participation of triathlon debutants. Thus, triathletes will have to cover 400 meters of swimming, 10 km of cycling and 2 km of running. The test will have as a favorite the Albacete from the Mandarache Triathlon Club of Cartagena Mateo. There will also be good juniors like Guillermo Martínez and Emilio Arroyo from Albacete and the Ramírez Vinuesa twins from Roda.
In the female category it seems that the victory will be between the two Albacete juniors Cristina Moya and Claudia López, who will make a quality touch prior to the Spanish Triathlon Championship to be held in September in Vigo. The winners of the test will get a weekend for two people in a Sidorme chain hotel. The first venues to finish the test will receive a free month at the Polideportivos & Fitness Imaginalia gym.
To end the day, tests will be carried out for the infant categories, fry, youngest and prebenjamines with distances more appropriate to their ages.
In order to be able to carry it out, in addition to the Los Llanos Social Club, the Albacete Triathlon Club has had the sponsorship of the Albacete City Council, Cycnetwork, Coca Cola, Hotel Sidorme, Bicicletas Rumbo, Ivre recuperación deportiva and Arenas Audio.
On the other hand, on Saturday the Regional Triathlon Championship will be held in Olympic distance (1500 meters of swimming, 40 km by bike and 10 km of running) in the town of Pareja in Alcarria.
