IRONMAN Vitoria-Gasteiz: A good alternative to Barcelona
For all those who have been looking forward to taking part in an IRONMAN in Spain – or have not had enough with just one – there are still a few places available for the 10 July edition in the capital of Alava. As one of the most prestigious races on the Peninsula, this triathlon is also held on relatively easy terrain, where it is possible to move quickly and set good times.
Starting at the Ullibarri-Gamboa lake, within the Landa Provincial Park, the route continues with the cycling section, which will take place in the green and gentle landscapes that characterise the Basque Country, even passing through some sections of the Camino de Santiago. Finally, the marathon will take place inside the historic centre of Vitoria, where the local atmosphere – with a population ready to passionately cheer on all the athletes – is unbeatable.
Although IRONMAN Vitoria-Gasteiz takes place in the summer, the mild northern climate provides optimal conditions for the competition, with average temperatures of 19°C. In addition, after the race you can take the opportunity to visit a city that is almost a thousand years old and contains great medieval, Gothic, Renaissance, neoclassical and modern wonders.
The quality of the local gastronomy cannot be ignored either, characterised by a wide variety of traditionally prepared products, perfect to enjoy with friends or family. An ideal opportunity to compete in a unique IRONMAN!
