We are very proud to announce that our super-fit tradesman Michael has qualified and will be taking part in the 2014 Challenge-Paguera Mallorca ETU Middle Distance Triathlon European Championships in October 2014.
A triathlon is a gruelling multiple-stage competition. It involves three continuous endurance disciplines, back to back. Triathlon involves swimming, cycling, and running over various distances. Triathletes compete for fastest overall course completion time. The word “triathlon” is of Greek origin from τρεις or treis (three) and αθλος or athlos (contest).
The three segments of the Half Paguera-Mallorca are:
1. Swimming 1900m starting and finishing on the beach in Paguera for a distance over a single lap.
2. Cycling 90 km, two laps 45km, closed to traffic.
3. Running 21 km starting in Paguera Beach, where four rounds will begin to Urb. Atalaia.
Everyone at Chas D Allflatt wishes Michael the very best of luck!
