As you will have seen, this weekend is the big event in Chicago. Not just a triathlon but a whole few days of celebration of multi-sport. Organisers are more frequently making sure that their events are not just an Elite Race or a Junior Race but also “something for everyone” and you have to admit, the Federación Española de Triatlón has planned a great selection of events for the weekend of the 2015 Castro Urdiales ETU Cross Duathlon European Championships.
If you are heading that way and want to do more than just the Cross Duathlon, then the Spanish Federation has on offer a chance to participate in their own planned events on the Sunday and Monday. If you fancy a bit of a challenge, then go for the Quadrathlon on the Sunday. It will be the Spanish Championships but there is also an open race and all the equipment is available for hire.
Quadrathlon has been big in the UK for a number of years but the real focus only came to strength in the UK in about 2000. Overseen in the UK by the British Quadrathlon Association there are, around the world, many such groups working to the world governing body, the World Quadrathlon Federation.
So, if you fancy dipping your toes into another sport and feel strong enough to add another discipline to your usual swim, bike, run, then this is a great opportunity for you to try, especially as the equipment will be available to you on site.
On the Monday there is a cross triathlon open race, using the same course of the Cross Duathlon but with a nice swim thrown in for fun.
Sounds good ? Well, give it a try and use the following links to find out more.
Just make sure you have entered through your Federation. Deadline for entries is 27th September.
See you there !!
