Everything is prepared meticulously in the Club La Santa, in the Lanzarote municipality of Tinajo, to host on Saturday from the 10 of the morning the oldest triathlon of the Canary Islands, the XXVIII edition of the Volcano Triathlon, considered by experts as Preparatory of the Ironman, which will take place three weeks later in Puerto del Carmen.
The Volcano will allow participants of different ages and nationalities to assess their physical condition for their intervention in the Ironman, for which they have been training in La Santa.
Among the participants in this edition is last year's winner, the Danish Rasmus Petraeus, who will have among his closest rivals the Estonian Kirill Kotshegarov and the Irishman Bryan McCrystal, who is competing for the first time as a professional. Kirill is 23 years old, and he is probably the most promising Estonian triathlete. He was a three-time champion of his country in the junior category, in addition to achieving two victories in national middle distance triathlon races, and several silver medals in Olympic distance and duathlon. As usual in recent years, there will be Canarian representation in the event, since it counts for the Federation Cup (Fecantri).
Equipment with disabilities
The Volcano is also an integrating event. Once again it has the presence of three teams with disabilities. A team in which Stefan Lange participates, in the race segment in the handbike modality. A second team, the TRiWWW.Dream Team, made up of Andrés Martín in the swimming segment, David Blas in the cycling segment and Israel Coronado in the running segment. And finally, a third team, the TRiWWW.Palante, with Miguel Barreto swimming, Claire Elliott on the bike and Elvis Díaz running.
Three segments make up the Volcano. The 1,5 km swimming segment in the spectacular lagoon of Club La Santa. The 40 km cycling segment, with a route starting and finishing at the Club La Santa stadium. And after leaving the stadium, the participants will head towards Caleta del Caballo, Soo, Famara until the roundabout on the Teguise road. Once the roundabout is reached, the participants will return to Club la Santa, following the same route.
The last segment will be the 10 km run on foot, on a 5 km circuit that you have to do two laps, and which will run around the lagoon and the town of La Santa.
On Friday at 19:21 p.m. there will be a pre-test meeting in the Club La Santa square. At night, at XNUMX:XNUMX p.m., there will be the awards ceremony.
The relay teams are made up of 3 triathletes, 1 for each segment, in the female, male and 2 + 1 mixed team categories. The prizes for the relay teams will be a t-shirt and a finalist medal for each component.
