Next Sunday the Second edition of the Ciudad Albacete Triathlon will be held. Although the first edition dates from 2004, this time the Albacete Triathlon Club intends to give continuity and repeat this test year after year, since it is having a good reception and more triathletes have registered than expected (180 registered among all categories).
The test has the support of the Los Llanos Social and Sports Club, where the organization of the test will be located, as well as the swimming and running segments. The cycling segment will run along the avenue of the road to Pozomajano. The competitions will start from 9 in the morning.
One of the attractions 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 kms of cycling and 1500 meters of running. In the female category, Cristina González, from Albacete, dominates the cadet category in CLM, making 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 Rodeo start as favorites. On the Albacete side, Samuel Tendero will try to have a good race to qualify for the podium. The people from Albacete Ricardo Ander-Egg, Juan Ramón Sánchez and Juan Carlos Pedrosa 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 beginners in triathlon. Thus, the triathletes will have to travel 400 meters of swimming, 10 km of cycling and 2 km of running. The test will have as a favorite the Albacete of the Mandarache Triathlon Club of Cartagena Mateo. There will also be good juniors like Guillermo Martínez and Emilio Arroyo from Albacete and Ramírez Vinuesa from Rodeo.
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 and winners of the test will get a weekend for two people in a hotel of the Sidorme chain. The first venues to finish the test will receive a free month at the Polideportivos & Fitness Imaginalia gym.
