More than 200 participants have already registered to participate next July 24 in the I Long Distance Triathlon of Aragon "Monegrosman" that will take place in San Juan del Flumen. The test consists of a course of 1.800 meters of swimming, 72 kilometers of cycling and 15 kilometers of running.

Rodrigo Gómez, representative of the Aragonese Triathlon Federation, has been present in the act of presentation of the test, has pointed out that this is the only Long Distance test that is held in the community, hence its importance and interest in taking hold.

Javier Solanas is the main organizer of the event. From the organization they feel very satisfied with the reception that the event has had, since it has "more than met" the expectations they had as it was a first edition. Regarding the test, it is necessary to highlight the difficulty it has, because it is a long and very demanding race, an aspect mainly linked to the climate of Monegros, although this factor can also be positive in order to attract participants, since many runners are they are drawn to these adversities.

San Juan del Flumen has been the place chosen to host this test, due to the suitability it presented for all the competition tests, as pointed out by Javier Solanas, who also appreciated the support that the event had received from the people of the people, in the form of voluntary participation in the organization.

We want to respect the individual effort that characterizes this type of event, hence the establishment of rules such as the prohibition of practicing “drafting”, that is, riding in a platoon. To ensure compliance with these rules, 14 judges will accompany the participants. Also noteworthy is the deployment to ensure the safety of the event: five canoes, a zodiac and a unit of divers from the Civil Guard in the reservoir and two ambulances on the rest of the route.
