The swimming test will take place in the La Pedrera reservoir, while the cycling circuit will pass through Hurchillo, Bigastro, San Miguel de Salinas, Rebate and Torremendo, which will be completed twice. The end of the bicycle segment will end at the Palacio del Agua, where the foot race will begin, which will pass through the urban area. In this case, two 15 kilometer circuits will be developed: the first will follow the course of the Segura River and the second will cross the urban area, towards the Santo Domingo school and the Palmeral.

The presentation of the event took place yesterday and the Sports Councilor, Luis Galiano, assured that the organizers offered the possibility of holding this championship in Orihuela and the Sports Department "could not reject the offer."

The organizer of the triathlon, Ximo Rubert, explained that the participation of about 200 athletes, both professional and popular, is expected, although the device that will be set up will cover a maximum of 300 athletes.
