1900M Swim 96K Run 21K
Entry ; €120 til Sept. €140 after that
Cut off time ; 10hours
“The most spectacular Triathlon” – Frederik Van Lierde , Ironman World
A few facts
Its not really a Course for T.T Bikes or Tri-bars with 2200M of climbing over 96K.
Putting that into perceptive
- Lanzarote IM has 2610M of climbing over 180.2K !!!
- The Lost Sheep Bike Course has 768M of climbing
- So its kind of like 3 Lost Sheep Bikes condensed into 96K !!!
2013 was the 1st year, Frederik Van Lierde , completed the Swim and Bike only. But We knew that at the Swim Start !
Only 4 Girls started in 2013 , Separate start for the Girls 10mins before the Men – See youtube Clips
