Garmin Barcelona Triathlon 2016

Garmin Barcelona Triathlon

An Olympic sport since 2000, and due to become part of the Paralympics at this year's Games in Rio, this three-pronged endurance contest has found a natural home in Barcelona, thanks to the city's spacious streets and ample seafront. Sponsored by Garmin since 2008, last year's event attracted some 4,000 triathletes aged between 16 and 73, who competed in one of the three different categories on offer: Olympic, Sprint and Supersprint. And even if you don't fancy a dip in the Med followed by a brisk bike ride then running as fast as you can to the finish line, take yourself to the Meta area, equipped with a large screen to watch all the action, sponsors' stalls, food and merchandising.
