The Sprint Triathlon of Rincón de la Victoria keeps growing. In the last two years we reached the limit of 350 participants, and this year it has expanded to 400. And we can expect that this event will continue increasing the number of participants over the years.
The test is based on the triathlon format in sprint mode and is divided into three modalities: the first segment will be developed between Playa del Tajo and Plaza Miguel Cerezo (750 meters) in the swimming discipline; the second segment will be completed by bicycle between the area of El Cantal and the educational center of La Marina (20 kms). Last but not least, the third part will consist of a distance of 5 kms running, round trip, from Plaza Miguel Cerezo to the Calaflores urbanization of La Cala del Moral.
The categories are youth, junior, sub-23, senior, and veterans I, II and III. The first three classified in each category, both male and female, will receive a trophy and different economic prizes. This is the only sport event that distributes cash prizes with the aim of dignifying the effort of Andalusian triathletes.
