Suspended the swim test in the double Enduroman
The dangerous state of the sea forces to suspend the swimming test of the Double Enduroman of Lanzarote
When the 37 participants in the Double Enduroman triathlon of Lanzarote were on the beach ready and ready to jump into the water and swim the 7.600 meters of the first test of this triathlon competition, the official heads of the emergency services and salvage made the decision to suspend the test due to the dangerous state of the sea.
Lanzarote, like the rest of the Canary Islands, is in orange alert status by very thick sea and winds of up to 70 km / hour.
Faced with this setback, the organizers of the Enduroman Lanzarote triathlon festival made the decision to replace the swimming segment with a half marathon that began at 16:37 p.m. After finishing this race on foot, the 360 triathletes who compete in this ultra-resistance modality will ride their bicycles to travel a total distance of 84 kilometers, after which they will have to run another XNUMX kilometers to complete this competition, the toughest of all the celebrated in Spain.
At the moment it is unknown if tomorrow Sunday the state of the sea will force the enduroman, Middle Enduroman and Olympic swimming events to be suspended, although there is hope that the storm will ease.
