5th Goa Triathlon at Bambolim scheduled for February

The 5th Goa Triathlon will be held at Bambolim on February 11, 2018 between 7am and noon. The event organised by Enduro Sports Goa has gained immense momentum over the years, and is set to attract close to 500 athletes, both beginners and professionals, from across the world.

A triathlon is a multiple-stage competition involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines and involves swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances. One of the world’s fastest triathletes Lucia Erat of Switzerland has been chosen as the brand ambassador for this edition.
From having just 100 participants in the first edition to having crossed 500 registrations last year, The Goa Triathlon is lauded by present and former athletes as one of India’s best triathlon events. It is the only triathlon event in India to include an open water sea swim as well as a cycle and running course closed off to vehicular traffic.
The Goa Triathlon offers athletes the choice of three categories; the Super Sprint Triathlon, The Olympic Triathlon and the Sprint Duathlon. The Olympic event begins with a 1.5 km swim in the Bambolim Bay, immediately followed by 40kms of cycling around the Goa University road circuit, which also doubles up as the course for the 10 kms run which concludes the race.
This event has the support of the Goa Tourism Department. Fans will be able to catch all the action from a designated spot on the Bambolim beach and from the footpaths of the Goa University road.
