The swimmer Mireia Belmonte, double Olympic medalist in London, has sponsored today the Challenge Barcelona-Maresme, triathlon test that will bring together more than 1.400 participants.
The fourth edition of the Challenge will be held on September 30, starting in the town of Calella, and incorporates as a novelty a circuit that covers up to fifteen municipalities in the Catalan region of Maresme, from Santa Susanna to Montgat, the scene today of the event presentation.
Mireia Belmonte has been the luxury godmother of this long-distance triathlon event in the 'ironman' format (3.800 meters of swimming, 180 kilometers of cycling and 42 kilometers of running).
“I have not seen many triathlon competitions, but I admire this sport. Training three sports in a row is very hard, I just swim and it's already very hard. What triathletes do is very difficult ”, commented Belmonte, who has already resumed, albeit gently, his training.
The Challenge Barcelona-Maresme has been recognized twice as the best triathlon event in Spain and next year it will be the European venue, which makes it a consolidated competition on the calendar.
“We organized a great sporting event of international scope. The best European triathletes will return to our house", commented the director of the event, Agustí Pérez.
