· On Sunday from 8:00 a.m. at the Casa de Campo, one of the events of the TriStar world series will be held for the first time in Madrid.
· The format consists of 1 km of swimming, 100 km of cycling and 10 km of running through the Casa de Campo.
Madrid will host another great triathlon party on Sunday starting at 8:00 am with the first edition of TriStar111 Madrid, the inaugural edition of this novel and fun test that will test about 100 triathletes in the heart of Casa de Campo. The TriStar111 Madrid was officially presented last Friday at the Reebok Sport Club de La Finca.
The TriStar111 Madrid is a new triathlon that is held over a spectacular distance of 111 km (1 km of swimming, 100 km of cycling and 10 km of running on foot), very fun for triathletes and that allows a quick recovery after the effort, unlike other formats.
In the words of Omar Tayara, race director, “this is the first edition of a test that will mark a before and after in Madrid. We are going to lay the foundations of a high-quality event focused on the fun of popular participants, which will attract great professionals. Furthermore, we focus on creating an event that is environmentally sustainable and socially involved and supportive, through Livestrong and in collaboration with the Spanish Association Against Cancer ”, assured the Olympic triathlete.
The test is organized by Star Events and by the Madrid Triathlon Federation. Its president, Lorenzo Bernal, affirmed during the press conference that it will be a “tour in a natural, hard and selective environment for the 10 bicycle climbs to Cerro Garabitas. It does not have an excessive complication, it is quite flat, but with the passage of the laps it can become complicated if the efforts are not regulated well. I think it is good and healthy that in addition to the traditional ITU distances we do different things so that a more varied number of athletes come and try triathlon, and the variety that our sport already has is always expanded with these new challenges. I hope that the test is consolidated and that in the coming years we will reach many more triathletes. I think that after the first experience many more people will be encouraged for future editions ”. The ITU (International Triathlon Federation) officially recognized the TriStar distances a month ago
The TriStar Madrid will have the presence of good Spanish triathletes such as José Almagro (recently proclaimed runner-up of Spain in cross triathlon and former professional cyclist), or Álvaro Velázquez, who was long-distance runner-up in Spain and is finalizing his recovery after an injury , or Jaime Menéndez de Luarca, who already competed in the past TriStar Mallorca, among others.
