Patricia Bueno and Alejandro Cañas take victory in the fourteenth edition of the Doñana Challenge

This weekend, the fourteenth edition of the Doñana Challenge in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Cádiz, and has had the participation of 318 triathletes. 

Patricia Bueno y English, both from Malaga, have taken the victory in the absolute category.  

Patricia, who came in second place last year, achieved first place with a time of 3:53:17.  

For his part, Alejandro crossed the finish line in 3:35:51, improving his third position from last year. 

This year's route has featured an 88-kilometer cycling segment, 1,4 km of swimming at the mouth of the Guadalquivir and a 21-kilometer run along Doñana beach.  

The weather conditions, unlike the previous days, have been favorable, which has allowed the triathletes to give their best. 

The audience has been large, following the event both at the start and in the different transitions and around the finish line on Malandar beach.  

This year, the event was attended by various authorities such as José María Arrabal, general secretary for Sports of the Junta de Andalucía, and Pablo Castilla, president of the Andalusian Triathlon Federation. 

One of the novelties of this edition has been the analysis of the risk of skin cancer, carried out by the Andalusian Center for Sports Medicine (CAMD) in collaboration with the Soludable Project. This study will allow us to quantify the amount of solar irradiation that triathletes receive during sports practice.
