Garmin Barcelona Triathlon 2015

One of the most popular Triathlons in Spain and the biggest in Barcelona, Garmin Barcelona Triathlon 2015, is just around the corner!

It will take place on the 21st of June. What better place to tackle the largest triathlon in Spain than in the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona?

Barcelona, a city that loves triathlons

Nowadays, a city that wants to profile itself as a healthy city, needs to have a triathlon on its annual agenda. In Spain, the most important triathlons are in Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona. 25% of the participants in Barcelona are foreign athletes.

Triathlon is a type of athletics unlike any other. Several physical and mental factors make it truly challenging for the participants. The athletes need to complete three different challenges: open water swimming, cycling and running. As you can imagine, not everyone is physically able to perform well in all three of these disciplines. Therefore, the preparation for the triathlon is very specific in order for the body to be able to adapt to the challenge.

Triathlon is seeing growth in popularity worldwide. Both public institutions and private companies are showing interest in this “sport of transitions.” On the Spanish national scene, Barcelona is betting heavily on the triathlon as part of a strateg to profile itself as a true sports tourism city.
