OCEAN LAVA TRIATHLON

ocean lavaThis new event is an independent triathlon race, made by Triathletes for Triathletes and sports people who like to challenge themselves with a unique experience as an individual or relay (group of 2 to 3 persons).

We are making this event on the classic traditional way with a fresh and new objective, with highest quality of services for athletes, families, friends, volunteers, our island and of course for our sponsors who will get much more than simple banners exposure.

The person in charge is Kenneth Gasque, Island Sports Events. Kenneth has been in charge of: Ironman Lanzarote since its start in 1992, Volcano Triathlon since its start in 1985, and many more sports events, including the Music Marathon Festival.

Kenneth is working close together with Lanzarote's authorities, 7 triathlon clubs and other sports clubs and friends.

SWIM COURSE: 1,9 kms. The OCEAN LAVA Triathlon swim will take place in Puerto del Carmen, on Playa Grande Beach, next to the Hotel Los Fariones Playa. The normal water temperature for this time of the year is 21 degrees.

BIKE COURSE: 90Kms. The Ocean Lava Triathlon bike course is simply unique, riding through volcano landscapes, the wine area of La Geria and after a few heavy climbs you come through the town of Yaiza and ride around El Golfo, you then come to Las Breñas before you reach the biggest challenge of the day: Femes, with a climb of more than 20% in the steepest area just before reaching the top, there is only one reason you shoud be stepping off your bike before finishing - walking is legal especilly on this steep climb of Femes.

RUN COURSE: The run is a 3 loop course and after the transition you run out to the turnpoint at Playa Los Pocillos just after the best Ice Cream shop on the island and before Hotel Jameos Playa.
